During 2016 the Dietitians Board conducted two consultations on the Dietitians Scope of Practice. The Board was very happy with the level of engagement from practitioners and stakeholders and thanks all those who provided submissions.

The Board undertook careful consideration of all the submissions received and made a final decision on the Scope of Practice which was Gazetted on 9 March 2017.

The Board sought to provide improved clarity to the Scope of Practise to assist the public, employers and practitioners better understand what constitutes practising dietetics by a health practitioner on the Board’s Register. The Board is satisfied the new Scope of Practice reflects the breadth of dietetic practice.

The new Scope of Practice comes into force on 1 April 2017 and the Gazette Notice can be found HERE.
