Dietetic Practice and the Nutritional Management of Disease in Childhood and Adults
Dietetics is the branch of science concerned with the diet and its effects on health, especially with the practical application of a scientific understanding of nutrition. Our research into Dietetic Practice includes all aspects of dietetics relating to both adults and children.
We want to ensure that what dietitians do in practice is based on good sound evidence and that dietary manipulations designed to promote good health and treat disease do just that.
We are also very interested in exploring the skills and attitudes dietitians need to develop to work effectively and how dietitians' working practices can be most effectively organised to deliver an efficient service.
