  • Dietitian

    The Forum has its very own Accredited Practicing Dietitian (APD) who is registered with Dietitian’s Association of Australia (DAA) to provide nutritional assessments for a range of individual needs.

    What is an Accredited Practising Dietitian?

    An APD has gained a nationally recognised university qualification that allows them to help individuals and groups understand the relationship between food and health. APDs undertake ongoing education and training to ensure the most up to date knowledge is obtained. APDs are trained to assess nutrition needs of individuals and groups, they can also assist people in the management of medical and health conditions using Medical Nutrition Therapy.

    What is the difference between a Dietitian and a Nutritionist?

    In Australia all APD’s are also Accredited Nutritionist, however NOT all nutritionists are dietitians. The key difference is that a dietitian has undertaken a course of study that includes extensive theory, supervised & assessed professional practice in clinical nutrition, medical nutrition therapy and food service management.

    Our Dietitian can provide dietetic services on a range of topics and conditions

    APD’s have extensive knowledge and consulting with a Dietitian can provide you with an array of health benefits and advice on:

    • Weight Loss/Gain
    • Diabetes
    • Gastrointestinal Conditions (IBS, constipation, reflux, diarrhoea)
    • High Blood Pressure
    • General Healthy Eating
    • Sports Nutrition
    • Improving energy


    Private Health Funds
    Our Dietitian is registered with major health funds. Payment is accepted at time of consultation and a receipt issued for you to take to your individual health fund.

If so, you can claim a rebate back through Medicare for up to five visits to us over a calendar year. We request payment at time of consultation and issue a receipt.
