Dietitians continue to be recognized as essential contributors to the health of Canadians and work in a variety of settings within the Canadian healthcare system.

Dietitians working in Nutrition Care use evidenced-based practice to help manage and improve the health outcomes of individuals. They use the principles of medical nutrition therapy in a systematic approach to assess, nutritionally diagnose, implement and monitor nutrition care plans to ensure consistent care for all.

Working alongside a variety of healthcare professionals, dietitians are part of the interprofessional team that provides healthcare to Canadians.
