Open Access Biomedical Publisher Using Post Publication Peer Review
Its an excellent article for healthcare executives and nutritionist for implementing dietary program in the hospital.
worked in administrative positions in a teaching hospital for more than 10 years.
A very good article in terms of creating awareness among the medical fraternity. There is a need for medical practitioners/specialists to understand and acknowledge the role of therapeutic nutrition in the holistic and long term management of several disease conditions.
I just suggest to keep the length short, so that it continues to hold the interest of the "target audience". It can be written in a series..like short articles...will have more impact I feel.
Congratulations to Dr Naveen for conceiving the idea of doing this.
I have done my masters in Food and Nutrition. I have been teaching Nutrition at undergraduate (including MBBS) and postgraduate level and doing community nutrition research, for the last 17 years plus.
This is very good paper some researchers like us to know the process of your research methodology and data collection, it was very infromative, I think there should hypothesis testing should be there.
Dr. Pera's paper is very informative. A Healthcare Facility should compliment medical treatment with nutritional practice. Food indications and contraindications with medical intervention must be considered. It is my personal opinion that Physicians as a group are poorly prepared to make nutritional assessments to compliment the medical prescriptions with healthcare treatment. An example of this is that I was a patient in a hospital for 8-days. During that time period, I was given the choice of menu's and I chose "Vegetarian" for health outcome. I performed a dietary analysis of the foods I ate during my stay only to discover that the sodium content of this "Vegetarian" diet was 13000 mg sodium daily as opposed to my normal intake of less than 2000mg/day. The point of quoting one example of errant practices is that Healthcare Dieticians need to be empowered to write strict patient-centered diets to treat and compliment medical prescriptive results.
If the Physician has a background in nutrition, this should be written into the patient's treatment orders...if not the Dietician should impose strict nutritional guidelines.
