Accredited Practising Dietitians (APDs) are University qualified experts in nutrition and dietetics who have the skills and experience to translate scientific nutrition information into practical dietary advice.
APDs are committed to undertaking continuing professional development to keep up to date with the latest advances in nutrition and health so they can provide patients with the best possible information.
APDs are all members of the Dietitian's Association of Australia (DAA), Australia's leading nutrition focused body. They are committed to the DAA code of professional conduct and code of ethics. APDs can be identified by the APD title and logo, and are listed on a national register. To visit the register log on to the Dietitian's Association of Australia website and go to 'Find an APD'.
All of the dietitians at Nutrition Professionals Australia are APDs. NPA Directors Julie Dundon and Anne Schneyder have been awarded Advanced Accredited Practising Dietitian status by the Dietitians Association of Australia. This Professional Recognition is awarded to APDs who have advanced skills and experience in their field and are seen as role models and mentors for the profession. Julie and Anne were the first dietitians to be awarded this credential in South Australia.
