In this report, we analyzed the effectiveness of our measure in streamlining national registered dietitians' work process in a nutritional support team (NST). After introducing the measure to improve the identification of various oral nutritional supplements (ONS), the occupancy rate of ONS explanation by dieticians' work process during NST inspection was reduced from 22.2% to 5.5%. Furthermore, the average monthly prescription of ONS to patients increased.
This measure not only streamlined dieticians' work process but also encouraged the nurses to participate in nutritional management.
