Dietitians are the only registered professionals who can interpret the science of nutrition to improve health, and treat diseases and conditions. They use recognised methodologies to critically appraise the evidence base, which includes all forms of evidence and research to inform their advice. They cannot offer advice where there would be personal financial benefit, and need to consistently meet the HCPC standards of conduct or risk losing their registration, therefore you can trust a dietitian to deliver the latest evidenced based care.
