Abstract: Background: There is an increased demand in primary healthcare but general practitioner (GP) numbers are declining, creating significant challenges. Dietitians are ideal professionals to lead the treatment of patients with conditions that are amenable to dietary manipulation, including the management of malnutrition and frailty. The present study evaluated the benefits of a model of care in which a dietitian, working as a first contact practitioner within a general practice, provided care to patients at risk o… Show more

“…Similarly, the impact of chronic diseases or conditions also needs to be considered in interventions for frailty. For example, a dietitian acting as a first contact practitioner for frail patients rather than a GP may be a cost-effective way to alter the nutritional status of frail patients (eFI 0.26–0.36) ( 89 ). Additionally, depression interacts with frailty (by the eFI) to further reduce the daily functioning of frail patients, suggesting that the clinical management of frailty should integrate physical and mental healthcare ( 90 ).…”

“…Those at higher risk have greater likelihood of negative health outcomes including hospitalization, falls, and increased comorbidity and mortality (Ramage-Morin et al, 2017). When identified early, nutrition risk can be significantly improved (Hickson et al, 2022).…”

“…Improvements in strength, frailty and nutritional status were demonstrated and, as a result of the modification of prescriptions for oral nutritional supplements, substantial savings in resources were noted. 6 In nutritional support, management in both primary and secondary care research is identifying gaps in evidence; uncertainties within the evidence base and how improvements to the delivery of care can be implemented and then evaluated.…”

“…An example of a service evaluation that has demonstrated improvements in management of nutritional support has looked at dietetic practice in primary care. 6 In this service evaluation, a dietitian triaged patients and those at risk of malnutrition were subsequently assessed. Improvements in strength, frailty and nutritional status were demonstrated and, as a result of the modification of prescriptions for oral nutritional supplements, substantial savings in resources were noted.…”
