Released March 1, 2013
August 2011 – Pioneer Network Food and

GOAL STATEMENT: Establish nationally
agreed upon new standards of practice
supporting individualized care and
self‐directed living versus traditional
diagnosis‐focused treatment.
Nine Standards
Individualized Nutrition Approaches/Diet
Individualized Diabetic/Calorie Controlled Diet
Individualized Cardiac Diet
Individualized Altered Consistency Diet
Individualized Tube Feeding
Real Food First
Honoring Food Choices
Shifting Traditional Professional Control to
Individualized Support of Self‐Directed Care
New Negative Outcome
Offer resident choices
Encourage individual resident decisions
Homelike atmosphere
Less institutional
Replace large units w/smaller ones
Eliminate/reduce overhead paging
Close relationships between resident and
staff – promotes same care givers (consistent
Diet determined with the person and
in consideration of his/her informed
choices, goals, and preferences
rather than exclusively by diagnosis
Consider beginning with a regular
diet and monitoring the individual
response to it, unless a medical
condition warrants a restricted diet.
 Ensure
the physician and
pharmacist are aware of resident
food & dining preferences and
intake so medication can be
addressed & coordinated (e.g.
med timing & impact on appetite)
Explain the nutrition problem you
identified to the resident
 Develop an agreed upon, measurable
nutrition goal
 Develop interventions with resident
 If resident refuses any interventions,
explain risk/benefit and honor choice
 Documentation is an important part of
this process!
