The Dietitian Difference
All dietitians consider themselves nutritionists, but nutritionists without dietetic qualifications and registration cannot use the term dietitian or take on specialist dietetic roles in hospitals. According to the Dietitians Association of Australia, after Dietitians complete a Bachelor of Science they are required to obtain further qualifications in Human Nutrition, a course of study that includes substantial theory as well as supervised and assessed professional practice in clinical nutrition, medical nutrition therapy and food service management. Dietitians commit to evidence based practice and CPD logs are completed annually as part of their registration. Dietitians are also the only nutrition professionals recognised by Medicare.
