BiographyAdjunct Associate Professor Lim Su Lin is the Chief Dietitian and Senior Assistant Director of the Dietetics Department at the National University Hospital, Singapore. She has over twenty years of experience as a clinical dietitian. She also has contributed significantly in driving quality improvement and research projects. She is best known for her work on hospital malnutrition in Singapore. Her work has provided clear evidence that the adverse outcomes of malnutrition are not just a consequence of the disease process, but lead to substantial increases in length of hospital stay, readmission rate, mortality and hospitalisation cost. This led her to develop a nutrition screening tool called 3-Minute Nutrition Screening, which has been validated and published internationally, and is currently being used across multiple hospitals and nursing homes. She has also developed an effective nutrition intervention method for malnourished patients, which resulted in improved nutritional status, functional outcomes, quality of life and survival of patients.
Su Lin has received numerous awards on her work. At the national level, she has won the NHG Best Oral Presentation in 2006, NHG Young Investigator’s Award in 2007 and was a 4-time winner of the Singapore Allied Health Award for best oral presentation from 2009 to 2013. She was a recipient of the Singapore National Day Efficiency Medal in 2007, Singapore Public Service Excellence Award in 2011 and the NUHS-Mochtar Riady Pinnacle Excellence Award in 2015. Associate Professor Lim Su Lin received her PhD from Queensland University of Technology in Australia. She was awarded the QUT Outstanding Doctoral Thesis Award 2014 in recognition of her exceptional contribution and standard of excellence demonstrated in postgraduate research practice.
