What is an Accredited Practicing Dietitian?
Nastaran Habibi is an Accredited Practicing Dietitian (APD). An APD is a qualified health professional that provides nutrition intervention and support to patients. They must have tertiary qualifications in nutrition and dietetics and clinical training to modify diets in order to treat nutrition related health conditions. An APD must receive their certification from the Dietitians Association of Australia and must earn continuing education credits to maintain their APD status.
What is Medical Nutrition Therapy?
Medical Nutrition Therapy is a plan of care that focuses on the assessment, nutrition diagnosis, treatment plan, evaluation and continued monitoring of a patient / client. Medical Nutrition Therapy is an essential component of comprehensive health care services. Individuals with a variety of conditions and illnesses can improve their health and quality of life by receiving medical nutrition therapy. MNT can increase a patient’s health and well-being, and increase productivity and satisfaction levels through decreased doctor visits, hospitalisations and reduced prescription drug use. Numerous studies support the cost-effectiveness and consistent outcomes of Medical Nutrition Therapy when administered by an Accredited Practicing Dietitian like Nastaran Habibi.
