Why Choose a Dietitian?

With so much confusing nutrition information around it is hard to know what to believe or who to trust!

 

The Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) credential is a public guarantee of nutrition and dietetic expertise.

 

Dietitians (APDs) provide advice based on scientific evidence and have a minimum of 4-5 years of university training. They have the knowledge, understanding and clinical training to enable them to advise individuals and groups on all nutrition-related matters, from healthy eating and disease prevention to the treatment of complex health conditions. Dietitians with the APD credential are also required to undertake regular professional development to ensure that they are up to date with the latest research.

 

 

What is the difference between a Dietitian (APD) and a Nutritionist?

 

While all Dietitians are also Nutritionists, on its own the title 'Nutritionist' could apply to a qualified nutrition scientist or someone with an interest but little or no training in nutrition. Choosing a Dietitian (APD) is your assurance that your nutrition advice is coming from a qualified professional.

 

Another benefit of choosing a dietitian is that most private health funds will provide rebates for these consultations. Medicare also provides rebates for visits to dietitians treating chronic health conditions under a care plan coordinated by a GP.
