Dianne is the Public Health Nutrition lead for the Nutrition and Dietetics program. She joined the Bond team from King’s College London, where she was involved in all aspects of nutrition and dietetic education, across both campus and practice education. During her eight years at King's, Dianne also worked as the research dietitian on a large dietary intervention trial funded by the UK Food Standards Agency and Department of Health.
Dianne's main research and professional interest is in public health nutrition, particularly population approaches to improving dietary intakes. She has published a number of research papers related to clinical dietetics and dietetics education. The main study for her PhD was a dietary intervention randomized controlled trial investigating the impact of following UK dietary guidelines on cardiovascular disease risk in healthy people.
Dianne Reidlinger holds a PhD from King's College London, and is an Associate Professor with the Master of Nutrition and Dietetic Practice program. She is both an Australian Accredited Practising Dietitian, and a Registered Dietitian with the Health and Care Professions Council in the United Kingdom, having spent nearly a decade as a dietitian in England.
Dr Reidlinger is the Head of Program for the Master of Nutrition and Dietetic Practice program. She convenes and teaches the key research subjects for the program including Evidence-Based Practice for Health Professionals, Health Research Design and Planning, and the two comprehensive Nutrition Research Internships.
Dianne’s PhD included a dietary intervention randomized controlled trial funded by Public Health England and the UK Food Standards Agency. The study investigated the impact of following UK dietary guidelines on cardiovascular disease risk in healthy people. She also investigated the cost of dietary changes consistent with UK dietary guidelines, and conducted a qualitative exploration of randomized participants.
Assoc Prof Reidlinger's current research interests are focused primarily on dietary interventions to support the prevention and management of chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and chronic kidney disease. Exploring consumer and patient preferences for the translation of evidence into practice, and to inform patient-focused service delivery, is an important component of her current research projects. She is experienced in a range of research methodologies including systematic literature reviews, randomised controlled trial designs and qualitative studies. She is the Editor for the Australian professional journal, Nutrition & Dietetics, published by Wiley in conjunction with Dietitians Australia.
Dianne is currently leading and participating in several educational research projects and engages in the scholarship of learning and teaching. She is privileged to work with First Nations academics and students, with their cultural knowledge and understanding of the lands across Australia and continues to learn from them.
