Brief Summary:
Dietary assessment is a key component of the dietetic care process. Assessments usually take place within dietetic consultations using methods such as 24-hour recall and paper food diaries. This study will examine the feasibility of using an online dietary assessment tool, myfood24 as an alternative to current dietary assessment practices and explore the barriers and facilitators to its use within dietetic clinical practice. This will be a mixed method study using questionnaires and semi structures interviews with both dietitians and patients. Dietitians, and patients with a range of clinical conditions referred to an NHS Dietetic Service, will be recruited. Patients will be asked to trial the system to record their food intake prior to their dietetic appointment. This data will then be used for the dietary assessment within the consultation. Following this, patients and dietitians will be interviewed about their experiences. Quantitative data will be statistically analysed, and thematic analysis will be used to analyse qualitative data.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. System Usability [ Time Frame: After patients have used the system. Approximately 4 to 8 weeks after baseline. ]
    System usability score is generated using system usability scale - a validated questionnaire.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Patient Activation [ Time Frame: Baseline and end of intervention. (approximately 3 months from baseline) ]
    Patient activation score will be generated using Patient Activation Measure (PAM) a validated questionnaire.

  2. Acceptability of using the system as part of dietetic care [ Time Frame: The acceptability questionnaire and interviews will be completed at the end of the intervention.(approx 3 months from baseline) ]
    This will be generated using (I) Acceptability questionnaire for patients using a non-validated questionnaire and (2) Through participant interviews.
