Upon successful completion of this course you will be a qualified dietitian able to use your passion for working with people to promote healthy lifestyles, optimise health, manage and prevent diet related diseases.
Dietitians are the only qualified health professionals that assess, diagnose and treat diet and nutrition problems. This course is designed to enable you to use your expertise to promote a healthy lifestyle and offer nutrition advice. It is designed to enable you to translate the latest nutrition science into understandable, practical information about food and provide education and support to enable people to manage their health and treat nutrition-related disease.
Upon successful completion of the course you will have a thorough understanding of the physical and psychological components of nutrition, and importantly how to enable behaviour change, understanding the barriers people face and strategies which can be used to overcome those barriers which prevent successful adoption of healthier lifestyles.
You will also be encouraged to develop the communication and professional skills required to be an effective, evidence-based dietitian capable of improving the health and well-being of the people you work with.
