This award is to recognise outstanding achievements in integrating technology into dietetic practice. Technology can enhance dietetic practice, and service user experience. Such quality improvement initiatives can improve both clinical outcomes and efficiency.

Therefore, we actively recommend members of the BDA to be innovative and explore avenues for quality improvement through the use of technology. This award is to acknowledge and celebrate successful digital innovations, and encourage sharing of best practice. 

This award is open for applications.
