Dietitians are healthcare professionals that diagnose and treat diet and nutritional problems.
They offer dietary management advice for short- and long-term conditions including obesity, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and hypertension etc.
They support changes to food intake to address diabetes, food allergies, gastroenterologist conditions,coeliac disease, and metabolic diseases.
Dietary, lifestyle and medication modification can result in less medicine management for chronic conditions.They are trained in behaviour modification methods and motivational interviewing to enable patients to self-manage their conditions.
- Patients receive support to manage conditions with longer consultation times leading to improved outcomes.
- Deliver more collaborative and coordinated nutrition care, supporting training in practices and educational sessions for patients.
