A registered dietitian or RD focuses on providing evidence-based nutrition information to clients and the community. Dietitians translate complex scientific evidence into practical solutions to promote health and manage special health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer and allergies. Dietitians individualize information, care plans, and programs to meet the unique needs of clients and communities and look beyond fad-diets to provide sustainable life-changing advice.
A dietitian is a regulated profession like doctors, pharmacists, and dentists and are governed by their provincial regulatory body. They are valuable members of the health care team, and work collaboratively with other health care professionals.
To become a dietitian, one must graduate from an accredited university program, complete hundreds of hours of supervised hands-on training, then pass a registration exam. Ongoing professional development is not only a core value but a requirement.
