Refeeding Syndrome - Prevention and Management

Download this policy

Document Purpose

To provide guidance to clinical staff on the prevention and management of refeeding syndrome for inpatients across SCH and CHW. A previous policy was rescinded and there is now no policy available on the intranet for the management of refeeding syndrome across a range of clinical areas. The Eating Disorder Emergency Department Guideline is only applicable to patients with an eating disorder, however refeeding syndrome can occur in other patients. Dietitians frequently are asked for guidance from medical staff on treating refeeding syndrome.
