Malnutrition governance toolkit

This project aims to review and update the Malnutrition Governance Toolkit

The Malnutrition Governance Toolkit was developed in 2014 within Phase II of the VCMC (Victorian Cancer Malnutrition Collaborative) program of work. A project to evaluate the program’s effectiveness and to support its implementation was undertaken in 2016-17, that demonstrated the Toolkit was highly regarded within health services and a benchmarking pilot of two common malnutrition indicators was completed. This new project will review, update and refresh the Toolkit to make it relevant, contemporary and ensure it meets the needs of end-users. This will include incorporating findings of previous VCMC work project (specifically around the Second Edition of the NSQHS (National Safety & Quality Health Service) standards and the addition of a primary care/community chapter) and ensure appropriate sustainability plans are put in place.
