Specialist dietitians in Europe
If you are a dietitian who is practicing in a specialist area of dietetics such as diabetes, obesity, public health, administration (food service) – hoping to in the future then read on! In Europe there are many like you who want to share their knowledge and expertise to improve the service their patients and clients receive.
EFAD* has established European Specialist Dietetic Networks (ESDNs) to work together across Europe and we meet once a year at the annual EFAD conference. This year we are meeting on the 8th of November in Italy at Lake Garda (see http://www.efad.org for more details).
This year we will be considering specialist competences, how dietitians can share their expertise such as through developing e-courses, position papers and how specialists can impact on better health for all in both prevention and therapeutic areas. It would be great to see you in November but if you can’t make it why not visit us on-line at the efad website.
PS If you are already a member of Special Interest Group in your own country please make contact so we can link the many groups together.
Hope to see you in Italy
