Dietetic Core Standards – outlining the skills and knowledge required for dietitians working with people with disability.
The Dietetic Core Standards have been developed as a joint project between the NSW Department of Family and Community Services and Cerebral Palsy Alliance in 2016, and updated in 2018.
The purpose of the core standards is to promote professional development and continuous improvement for dietitians working with people with disability. The standards outline the minimum requirements necessary to work effectively with people with disability, their families/ carers, support workers and other professionals. They help guide professional practice for Accredited Practising Dietitians and also act as a guide for working within the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
The Standards were developed in consultation with a number of highly experienced clinicians, academics and other key stakeholders.
A range of resources are available to support learning for dietitians, health professionals and disability support practitioners.
