Course summary

Overview Dietitians are the only qualified and registered health professional that can assess, diagnose and treat dietary and nutritional problems. Dietitians use the most up-to-date public health and scientific research on the impact of nutrition on health and disease, translating this into easy practical guidance for people to implement to reach their nutritional goals. The dietetic profession is extremely varied, with opportunities working within the NHS, private clinics, public health, the food industry, sports nutrition and the media. You could find yourself working with people who are in hospital, in a clinic setting, nursing homes or at home. You could be helping young children to manage their newly diagnosed diabetes or supporting an oncology patient through chemotherapy with taste changes and a poor appetite, or advising on tube feeding regimens for patients who are struggling to meet their dietary needs through food due to ill-health.
