What is an Accredited Practising Dietitian?
Accredited Practising Dietitians (APDs) are university qualified professionals who have the qualifications and skills to translate scientific research into practical dietary and lifestyle advice. APDs undertake ongoing training and education programs to ensure they are your most up to date and credible source of nutrition information. In Australia all dietitians are nutritionists but nutritionists without a further qualification in dietetics cannot work as dietitians.
I am an Accredited Practising Dietitian. I have a Master of Nutrition and Dietetics as well as an Applied Science degree in Health Promotion. I have been a member of Dietitians Association of Australia and an APD for over 15 years.
