Social Meal Group

By: 1A (Acute Care Unit) Interprofessional Practice Council

The Challenge

Reducing isolation for patients on acute care units through improving their experience at meal time.

The Solution

Through research, the team found that a meal group on acute care units is very rare, and came up with the idea to start a Social Meal Group every Tuesday and Thursday in the unit’s Patient Lounge. The feedback from patients and staff alike has been positive – patients really appreciate this social time and look forward to the meal group, which they say helps them feel better while in hospital.
