The Hospital Dietitians Interest Group is an initiative that was created to promote, protect and empower the special scope of practise of a dietitian working in the hospital setting. As this is a challenging environment to work in the group aims to alleviate and solve everyday problems for the hospital dietitian to ensure that this special scope of practise is sustained and that the patient receives best care always.

Adapted from Beth Taylor, Anne Renfro and Lisa Mehringer…“The scope of practice of the hospital dietitians defines them as clinicians, educators and researchers. Their skill set is a unique and vital component of the intensivist-led multidisciplinary intensive care unit team.”
