Renal Dietetic Outcome tool – This is a document and plan developed by the Renal Nutrition group, outlining (among other things) what are the important nutritional outcomes to assess for kidney patients. This is aimed at renal dieticians, but the measurement strategy could provide focus for any quality improvement project aimed at nutrition or diet for kidney patients. Further information on the Renal Dietetic Outcome tool can be found in the pro forma here.
