What are dieticians?Dieticians help promote good health through proper eating. They supervise the preparation and service of food, develop modified diets, participate in research, and educate individuals and groups on good nutritional habits.
For medical reasons, a dietician may provide specific artificial nutritional needs to patients unable to consume food normally. Modifying the patient’s diet to address medical issues relating to food intake is also a major part of dietetics. The goals of the dietary department are to provide medical nutritional intervention, obtain, prepare, and serve full of flavour, attractive, and nutritious food.
Clinical dieticians work in hospitals and other health care facilities to provide nutrition therapy to patients according to the disease processes, provide individual dietary consultations to patients and their family members and also conduct group educations for other health workers, patients and the public. They coordinate both medical records and nutritional needs to assess the patients and make a plan based on their findings.
