Departments

Nutrition & Dietetics

The Nutrition and Dietetic Department is a dynamic, team-focused department dedicated to the provision of high quality nutrition services to patients of Austin Health and community. We employ over 30 Dietitians, and provide a seven-day service across the three hospitals within Austin Health.

Our services include nutritional care for inpatients, outpatients and clients in the community. We are closely involved in food service, teaching and training, and research and quality activities.

We strive to foster a team culture in all our work. We support staff to undertake professional development and provide a professional support program within the department. We continually seek opportunities to expand and improve our services, and have established links with Deakin University to strengthen our research, teaching and training work.
