But...in five years’ time...will this still be what you are looking for from us?

Please take part in our informal research here .

DOM UK Weight Loss Pack

Attention: open in a new window. Print

Last Updated (Wednesday, 04 February 2015 15:52)

Dietitians and other health professionals alike will welcome the update to this popular weight management pack from DOM-UK – the British Dietetic Association’s specialist group for weight management.  It acts to support and guide people from considering losing weight to maintaining successful weight loss.  This practical range will compliment and/or help structure a weight management programme to accommodate diverse needs.

Having been through NDR-UK's review process involving critical appraisal of current evidence, best practice and defined care aims and learning outcomes, as well as peer review, the new pack includes four leaflets with two inserts as follows:

  • 9400 Common questions about losing weight - view sample
  • 9401 Getting started with weight loss (includes My Action Plan insert) - view sample
  • 9402 Changing for Good (includes Food and Activity Diary insert) - view sample
  • 9403 My Calorie Portion Control Plan (suitable for use by dietitians only) - view sample

Leaflets are available to order in packs of 10 and can be used either individually or together as a structured weight loss programme.

   

New Paediatric Resources

Attention: open in a new window. Print

Last Updated (Wednesday, 04 February 2015 14:01)

We are delighted to announce that our much anticipated new range of paediatric resources is now available.

The range comprises:

  • 9404 Eating well for under 5's - a guide for families with children aged 1-5
  • 9405 Eating well for 5-12 year olds - a guide for families with children aged 5-12
  • 9406 Fussy eaters - a guide for the whole family to help manage fussy eating in the under 5's
  • 9407 Fussy eaters, an action plan - a planned appraoch to help manage fussy eating in the under 5's
  • 9408 A cow's milk free diet - for children aged 1-5 years
  • 9409 Weaning my baby - a guide for parents and carers
  • 9410 Eating for healthy growth - advice for families with 5-12 year olds who need to gain weight

Judging by early reviews and comments they are both robust in evidence base and user-friendly in format.

“They were informative and easy to read and I think that the parents will find them informative and useful.”

“I feel confident that the content mirrors the message I am conveying to my patients.”

The resources provide a practical format around which conversation and action points can be based.

They include distinct ‘top tip’ sections to pull out key information and a summary of ‘changes we might make’, as well as notes sections for parents/carers/health professionals to make notes specific to each individual situation.

Paediatric spreads

NDR-UK’s resource production policy is well known as one of the most robust in the diet and nutrition resources field, with peer and patient reviews in addition to risk assessment by a professional dietitian.  All of NDR-UK’s resources are accredited with NHS England’s Information Standard, certified by the Royal Institute for Public Health, and our tried and tested ordering system makes life nice and easy for both public and private sector customers.

All proceeds from the sale of NDR-UK resources are reinvested in resource development.

Do you work in dysphagia management?

Attention: open in a new window. Print

Last Updated (Tuesday, 06 January 2015 15:53)

If so, NDR-UK needs your input.

Developing information to support dysphagia management is central to improving quality of life, health outcomes and minimising risk. NDR-UK is exploring how to adapt our ‘First Steps to Easier Swallowing’ (ref: 9092), to improve accessibility for people prescribed a texture modified diet following stroke.

Our initial consultations have produced some interesting suggestions for development, including:

  • Making information mobile and accessible in any environment, for example by computer, tablet or related mobile device in or away from home.
  • Provide moving images that could be followed in real time.
  • Provide interactive information to meet patients’ ‘prescribed’ food texture (B-E) and fluid stage (1-3).
  • More examples to offer a greater variety of food options.
  • Touch screen or voice control.

We are seeking views and guidance from as many people working in dysphagia to guide us on what is needed and what will work to meet practical and clinical needs of patients and carers alike. Please have your say in the development of this important resource by following this link https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2WYFR5Y to a short survey.

Many thanks for your ongoing support.
