Abstract

Leadership students at Oregon Health and Science School of Nursing were directed by the Health Services Director to improve client nutrition at their pediatric inpatient psychiatric facility. Based on client need, evidenced based research, and a staff survey, a plan was created to educate the facility skills trainers about healthy nutrition. Skills trainers spend more time with clients than any other member of the treatment team, therefore, are in a unique position to impact client nutrition. The aims of this project are to educate skills trainers at the facility by increasing motivation, confidence, and knowledge surrounding the ability to provide client nutrition education; and embrace healthy role modeling behavior by gaining skills needed to make healthy choices. An evidenced based Healthy Nutrition Tips template was created to be read at daily skills trainer pre-brief meetings. This intervention is to be implemented and sustained by the facility nursing staff. To attain results of efficacy the skills trainer survey is to be administered again 90 days after the project is implemented.
