Dr Shelley Roberts is an Allied Health Research Fellow and Accredited Practicing Dietitian working in a conjoint research position between Griffith University and Gold Coast Health. Her research focuses on improving nutrition among hospitalized patients, with interests in patient participation in care, health information technology, and knowledge translation. Since 2016, Dr Roberts has led a program of research to develop, implement and evaluate a technology-based intervention that allows patients to actively participate in their nutrition care at the hospital bedside, through patient-led dietary intake tracking and nutritional goal setting and monitoring. This work aims to improve the nutrition intakes and statuses of hospitalized patients, in order to improve outcomes for patients and hospitals.
