12th EFAD Conference

EFAD is preparing the 12th conference in Berlin on 1-2 November with many new interesting topics. Patient centred care is important in developing new standards of dietetic care, not only for the patient, but together with the patient. Ideally all dietitians should work in multidisciplinary teams. Regardless whether you are a clinical dietitian, or working in primary care, foodservice or higher education institutes, working together with other professionals will improve patient outcomes. Innovation and e-health are important topics too.

How can you benefit from these “new’’ developments? How can you influence healthy choices? How can you offer the best quality of care to your patients or clients? By breaking your professional boundries! Take the opportunity to:

  • pro-actively collaborate with other health professionals
  • advocate for better nutritional health in Europe
  • work with patients to truly embed patient-centred care
  • embrace technology in blended care or new types of learning and knowledge exchange
  • be innovative!

EFAD is preparing the 12th EFAD Conference for you and will address all of these issues and more. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from dietitians and others across Europe who are already “Breaking Professional Boundaries”.
