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 gave the profession the chance to find out about the key changes in all aspects of dietetic education and to be able to influence the debate.

Those who attendeed include University staff, practice educators and dietetic manager who were all interested in shaping dietetic education and CPD for the future.

The programme was jam packed with lots of case studies on innovative practice from across the UK. There were a number of group disucssion and the feedback from these will be used by both the Education and Professional Practice board in the development of education guidelines going forward.

We hope to host the forum in the near future - watch out for future announcement in BDA communications.
