DIETETIC PRACTICE THEORY AND CASE MANAGEMENT A
Credit points: 30
This subject focuses on the nutrition and dietetic management of common diseases and conditions, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis, malnutrition, gastrointestinal disorders and pregnancy. In this subject, students will extend learning from DTN4DPS to develop their skills in individual dietetic case management, one of the key domains of competency required by the national accrediting body. Translation of the theory of nutrition assessment, diagnosis and management into practice will occur through simulated learning and during a placement in a clinical setting. During this placement, students will undertake nutritional assessment of patients/clients with specific diseases and conditions; integrate nutrition assessment data into a nutrition diagnosis, and formulate nutrition goals and management plans. Students will also examine the role and tools for nutrition screening, and undertake and/or act on the outcomes of nutrition screening in clinical practice.
