About the event

Approximately 50% of total food placed at patient’s bedside ends up as waste, resulting in millions of dollars in wasted food, worsening the climate change crisis we face. Dr. Eileen Wong will share her findings from her award winning Quality Improvement project on the food experience of residents in a long-term care. With a patient-focused lens, she will share her interventions and measurement techniques to evaluate and implement change, resulting in food sustainability and resource stewardship.
