Dietetic Education Forum


Dietetic education is dynamically evolving.  Policy drivers from across the UK (including Government funding, apprenticeship schemes, integrated care etc) are influencing both the way we deliver training and CPD and the subject matter covered.

It is vital that the profession is proactive in its approach to education and ensures that members are equipped to succeed in the changing environment, reflecting service needs now and for the future.

This interactive event is your chance to find out about the key changes in all aspects of dietetic education and to influence the debate.
