This one-day course is aimed at dietetic support workers working in both acute and community settings. It will be suitable for those relatively new in post and as a useful update for those with some previous knowledge and experience. The day will cover the importance of best practice for dietetic support workers and the principles of patient centred care as well as challenging dietetic support workers to consider their own professionalism and putting values and ethics into practice in the workplace.
