What is a Dietitian?

An Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) describes a university-trained and DAA accredited dietitian and nutritionist who possesses the knowledge, skills and competency to provide expert nutrition and dietary advice. APDs design and deliver Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) which forms an integral part of the management of people with chronic and complex diseases. The aim of the intervention is to facilitate long term behaviour change by encouraging the self-management of health through nutrition, diet and other lifestyle modifications, with a view to preventing and treating disease.

How a Dietitian can help you

Dietiaians practice what is known as "Medical nutrition therapy" which is a clinical intervention delivered by Accredited Practicing Dietians. This intervention builds on general nutrition advice to achieve improved clinical and health outcomes appropriate to disease status (e.g. HbA1c, renal function etc) through nutrition assessment, dietary advice, knowledge and skill development and behavioural counselling.

Medical nutrition therapy is evidence based and includes a detailed individualised nutrition assessment, setting individual goals and priorities, practical dietary advice and counselling with followup for the purpose of disease management to improve quality of life. The advice and counselling provided takes into account the patients’ goals, readiness to change, knowledge, skills and access to resources
