Catherine McShane

Catherine is a specialist dietitian with a career spanning 17 years. Initially specialising in care of the elderly in both the acute and community setting, more recently Catherine has been involved in developing training, resources and guidelines for health and social care staff to identify, treat and monitor undernutrition in the community. As a result of frustrations of not being able to monitor patients as regularly as needed she sought a solution to improve the dietetic care that could be provided to patients at risk of undernutrition. This has led to the creation of NHS Health Call Undernutrition. Catherine has been instrumental in clinically leading the development, implementation and evaluation of this and is now supporting the development of further digital solutions for health care related issues.
