Abstract

The present study aimed to clarify information-gathering during the process of designing care plans regarding nutrition improvement in nursing care insurance services. A total of 2,000 nursing care insurance service providers were randomly selected from the nursing care insurance service networks throughout Japan, and an anonymous self-completed questionnaire survey was conducted care managers. This study identified a low rate of including nutrition indices as information-gathering items during the process of designing care plans regarding nutrition improvement. This was suggested to be attributable to the type of service, fundamental qualifications, and education. To design care plans aimed at nutrition improvement for older people requiring care, it is necessary to provide care managers with standardized education on nutrition indices and older people’s independence. In addition, the need for education in basic professional education courses was suggested.
