Health and nutrition is an area of national concern. The resources of the Health Service in contemporary Britain are increasingly being directed at preventative health care and at strategies which educate, inform and guide behaviour in certain health related issues. You will develop a sound scientific underpinning knowledge, but also gain skills in health care and specifically in recognising and planning for nutritional related health issues. It encompasses a wide range of situations and scenarios, developing the people skills as well as the knowledge required to work with individuals. It also involves broader roles, such as working with schools and groups, using persuasive and informational techniques and exploring the cultural and social barriers which inhibit sensible nutritional behaviours.
