Celebrating Dietitians Week 5-9 June 2023

This week is Dietitians Week (5-9 June) - an opportunity to reflect on the importance of dietitians and why they are central to tackling malnutrition in the UK. We support the British Dietetic Association's work to promote the work and value of the dietetic workforce.Although not all patients at risk of malnutrition will need to see a dietitian, it is recognised that dietitians play a crucial role in leading the implementation of appropriate evidence-based malnutrition management pathways, such as the Managing Adult Malnutrition in the Community Pathway, ( supporting primary care professionals to effectively address malnutrition through early intervention.As integrated care systems further develop their preventative care approaches, dietitians will play an even more vital role supporting colleagues and patients across the range of healthcare and community settings. BSNA members collaborate and work with dietitians across a variety of specialities, with many dietitians working within industry themselves.The launch of the British Dietetic Association's (BDA) Industry Specialist Group in March this year was very positive news to bring together and support all dietitians working in non-clinical roles in all areas of industry. Through this year’s Dietitians Week, BSNA takes the opportunity to recognise the value of this highly skilled profession.
