Standard Nutrition Care
Standard care in the P-INPAC pathway refers to the minimum level of nutrition care that should be received by all children, regardless of their nutritional status.
Advanced Nutrition Care
Advanced care involves strategies to improve intake and to assess nutritional status beyond the standard nutrition care provided to all patients. Advanced care is needed to address malnutrition (i.e., patients identified as SGNA moderate or severe). The objective of this care is to provide more nutrient dense food/formula to children at meals and between meals to optimize oral intake, while still providing all components of standard care. A clinical dietitian should be consulted and a comprehensive nutritional assessment completed.
Specialized Nutrition Care
This level of care includes continuation of Standard and Advanced Nutrition Care strategies and includes nutrition support and individualized treatment and monitoring.
