FOOD SERVICE MANAGEMENT THEORY AND PRACTICE
Credit points: 30
In this subject you will examine the theory and practice of nutrition relevant to food service systems and management. By using the food service setting, as a context for the study of general management principles, you will be taught skills in influencing and contributing to food service management - menu planning, food safety, human resource management, regulatory requirements and implementing quality activities. You will undertake a five-week placement practical, of which two weeks is concurrent with clinical dietetics placement, enabling these concepts to be applied in settings where clients are nutritionally dependent on the food service. A further three-week placement will provide you with the opportunity to complete a research project in food service. Professional accreditation requires a minimum level of clinical exposure. Students' attendance at professional placements will contribute to meeting this requirement for professional recognition as a dietitian.
