What is a dietitian?

A dietitian is someone who applies the science of nutrition to the feeding and education of individuals and groups in order to influence health and disease. They may also be involved in the diagnoses and dietary treatment of disease.

Dietitians often work with people who have special dietary needs, inform the general public about nutrition, give unbiased advice, evaluate and improve treatments and educate clients, doctors, nurses, health professionals and community groups.

All dietitians are registered with the Health Professions Council (HPC) in the Uk or the Irish Nutrition and Dietetics Institute in Ireland. and as such have to undergo rigorous training and demonstrate fitness to practice to remain on the register. Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
