This subject will develop foundational competencies relevant to health communication and nutrition and dietetic counselling for individuals and populations. Students will build on the skills and knowledge developed in this subject in subsequent semesters, as they move towards achieving graduate competence.
Learning activities and assessment will focus on the development of skills across various modes of nutrition communication including tools, technology, written and oral modes of communication. Students will develop a range of foundational skills that are essential for dietetic practice including client-centred counselling skills incorporating the principles of health behaviour change, motivational interviewing, reflective practice, and feedback skills.
