Outpatient nutritional services are provided to Veterans at the VA St. Louis HealthCare system in a variety of care settings including primary care clinics, home based primary care, and spinal cord injury.


PRIMARY CARE

Veterans are assigned primary care providers at locations which are most convenient for the Veteran. Primary care clinics are located at the Jefferson Barracks and John Cochran Divisions as well as in community based clinics (Belleville, St. Charles, North County and Washington). Dietitians provide nutrition counseling in the primary care setting on an individual basis, group setting, and by clinical video telehealth (CVT).

  • Group Classes
    • Heart healthy nutrition and diabetes courses are taught by a clinical dietitian at the Jefferson Barracks division.

Diabetes nutrition education is taught by Clinical video Telehealth (CVT). CVT services allow dietitians to counseling Veterans in the community in real-time using video conferencing technology.


HOME BASED PRIMARY CARE (HBPC) SERVICES

Community and Home Based Primary Care (HBPC) Services provides care within the home setting consistent with the prescribed continuity of care plan. The care is provided to all veterans of any age living within a 60-mile radius of this VAMC who meet clinical service criteria. The complexity of patients’ care needs include long term care for veterans with chronic, multiple, interacting medical and psychosocial needs; short term care for those veterans requiring post hospitalization/clinic visit support addressing specific treatments; and education in self-care and/or monitoring.


SPINAL CORD OUTPATIENT CLINIC

The SCI/D service provides outpatient primary care and specialty services to patients with spinal cord injury. The clinical dietitian completes a comprehensive annual evaluation on patients followed by outpatient SCI/D services.
