Summary:

Today’s clinical nutrition managers face a constant challenge in how to provide high-quality nutrition care to sick patients while facing budget cuts and staff downsizing. About 40% to 50% of all patients admitted to the hospital are at risk for malnutrition, and need quality care. Several strategies are available to help the clinical manager decide on appropriate patient-staff ratios, as well as staff productivity tools and guidelines for recruitment and hiring practices. Clinical managers can exhibit creativity in managing the workforce, including using nontraditional work schedules, while providing quality care and staying within budget.

Objectives:

The goal of this clinical nutrition management training continuing education program is to familiarize new clinical nutrition managers with various aspects of managing human resources and to provide tools to help them manage effectively. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Describe various staffing models, measures of staff productivity and questions pertinent to a staffing needs assessment
  • Identify the basic steps for employee recruitment and selection
  • List nine questions to ask regarding cost containment in staffing, including the pros and cons of using temporary or PRN staff

Important course for dietitians desiring to move into a management position within the clinical operation. My past experience as a director for 35+ years demonstrated a lack of knowledge on the part of clinical dietitians when it came to understanding how to do scheduling and determine staffing needs for the clinical component of the food & nutrition services department.

Some of the basic concepts were good, however I think there were issues with one of the calculations when using doing the staffing needs assessment.

glad it was offered, I learned nothing of this in college, just told my annual salary would be low , no rational, no reasons to why HR made choices, did not know how they determined FTE #.
