About the webinar:

In this webinar, clinical dietitian Steph Yap and community dietitian Kate Dacanay will walk you through the different pathways they use to manage malnourished patients in their respective settings. Steph and Kate will share their thoughts on optimising a patient’s transition between hospital and the community, and touch on the challenges COVID-19 has presented in their work.


About the speakers:

Steph Yap works across both acute and subacute inpatient wards at Northern Health in Victoria, and has extensive experience in Community Therapy Services at Northern Health.  Steph pioneered a pathway for phone follow up of malnourished/high risk of nutritional deterioration patients discharged from hospital prior to COVID, and her model has been invaluable with providing the foundation for the move to telehealth during the pandemic. Steph is also a member of the Dietetics Malnutrition Working Party and has extensive experience in both use of SGA and GLIM criteria for malnutrition diagnosis.





Kate Dacanay graduated from Deakin University with Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics in 2006. Kate initially worked as a locum at Peninsula Health covering acute and sub-acute wards. Kate has also held part time roles with Monash Community Health and Peninsula Health Falls prevention project.  Kate has worked with her current program, Community Care since 2008 and has been full time in this position since 2011. In this role Kate provides home based dietetic support and care coordination as part of a multidisciplinary team to clients that present to hospital frequently or have complex medical and psychosocial issues.  Kate has a special interest in falls, alcohol and substance use and social determinants of health.
