Department of Dietetics provides a wide range of dietetics services to patients. We provide diet counselling and advice on medical nutritional therapy, assess the nutritional intake and requirements of patients, and help to plan and design therapeutic diets for various medical conditions. Our therapeutic diets aim at improving patients' clinical outcomes, for example, ensuring better blood glucose control for diabetics and achieving normal cholesterol level for cardiac patients. In addition, we also specialise in planning tube feeding regimes for patients.
We are also involved in setting guidelines on hospital diets, nutrition related research, community services and conducting education programmes for medical personnel and students.
Besides caring for patients' nutritional needs, the department provides external services to companies such as health talks, workshops on various health topics, cooking demonstration on healthy dishes and nutrition education booth.
