The objectives of this project are to provide a basic understanding of nutrition and special diets, enhance patient care, reduce the order of non-compliant food items from patients, and minimize the delay in obtaining a meal tray. The methods of each module include develop the Microsoft Power Point presentation slides with voice recording, a short interactive activity and a quiz with ten to fifteen multiple-choice questions will be provided to assess the learner’s competency on the module. The learning objectives of each module are clearly defined. Figures and tables are utilized throughout the modules to help the learners better understand the contents. An ordering guide for complex diet such as cardiac and renal will be created.
