Nutrition is clearly linked to health, well-being, and clinical recovery. The quality of food we eat is a major contributor to health and to the prevention and treatment of disease. Assuring quality of care ensures that the patients are treated well, in every respect. Every healthcare individual should and has recognized that good nutritional care is instrumental to good clinical practice. Thus, nutritional screening of all patients should be a pivotal part of clinical practice. Here at Signutra portal we bring together those with a special interest in nutrition. By acknowledging the importance of multiprofessional involvement for effective nutritional care, we help healthcare practitioners, support systems and patients to make shared decisions about health care choices in clinical circumstances. Our vision is to make nutrition a cornerstone of medical care.
