What is an Accredited Practising Dietitian? Accredited Practising Dietitians (APDs) are university-qualified professionals that undertake ongoing training and education programs to ensure that they are your most up-to-date and credible source of nutrition information. They translate scientific health and nutrition information into practical advice, and practise in line with Dietitians Australia (DA), previously Dietitians Association of Australia (DAA) Professional Standards, including the DA Code of Professional Conduct and Statement of Ethical Practice.
How does someone become an APD? To become an APD in Australia, a dietitian must have graduated from an accredited Australian university dietetics course. Dietitians who trained overseas must complete an examination process before being eligible to join the APD program.
