What happens when I see a dietitian?

When you see a dietitian you will have an initial appointment and a series of follow up appointments according to your needs.

Your initial appointment with an NDIS registered dietitian

Your first appointment with an NDIS registered dietitian will involve:

  • a nutritional assessment
  • goal setting
  • dietitian recommendations.

During the nutritional assessment your dietitian will collect your:

  • medical history and current medications
  • anthropometric measurements (such as height, weight)
  • usual food intake and eating patterns
  • food allergies
  • nutrition-related concerns
  • physical activity/ movement.

After the nutrition assessment, your dietitian will provide you with feedback and information about your diet and how this relates to your health goals. You will then work together to set your goals and discuss the dietary changes that will help you to achieve them.

Follow up sessions with your dietitian

Follow up sessions with your dietitian usually involve discussions about:

  • the strategies you have tried
  • dietary changes.

You will also discuss any challenges and barriers and work together to see what has or has not worked.

What is the difference between a dietitian and a nutritionist?

What is a dietitian?

Dietitians use the science of food and nutrition to promote health, wellbeing & independence. They also provide nutrition advice for the treatment of diseases and conditions.

Dietitians are degree qualified to provide a range of dietary counselling and evidence based nutrition services. In Australia Accredited Practising dietitians must meet a range of regulatory and professional standards. You can find out more here.

What is a nutritionist?

A nutritionist gives advice on nutrition and food in order to achieve good health. Nutritionists are qualified to provide advice about general health rather than working in clinical and therapeutic settings such as hospitals.

Where are your NDIS registered dietitians based?

Our dietitians are based in Narre Warren and Warragul. We can also work with you via telehealth or make appointments in your home or community (local areas only). For more information contact 1300 946 337.
