This subject focuses on developing and consolidating graduate competencies, consistent with profession-specific competency standards, including those relevant to international nutrition and dietetic practice. The subject involves a 2-week supervised placement in another country (or equivalent domestic experience). Students will explore nutrition and dietetic practice from an international perspective, including consideration of inter-professional team roles across countries, and the effects of different cultural, political, economic, and physical environments on nutrition issues and priorities. They will undertake and reflect on a range of activities in a series of classroom-based sessions and during the overseas placement. Learning activities will provide the opportunity to develop and demonstrate advanced-level cultural competency and professional leadership.
- Critically reflect on the impact of different cultural, political, economic, health practitioner roles and physical environments on nutrition and dietetic issues and priorities in different countries.
- Demonstrate and apply cultural competency in nutrition and dietetic practice.
- Adapt nutrition and dietetic practice to be appropriate to the specific socio-cultural, economic and organisational context of health care.
- Critically assess opportunities to enhance the effectiveness of nutrition and dietetic practice in different country contexts.
- Develop and apply skills in leadership, team building, networking, and communication in an Australian and international nutrition context.
- Demonstrate a professional, ethical and entrepreneurial approach advocating for excellence in nutrition and dietetics.
- Demonstrate competence (knowledge, skills and attitudes) as required for safe practice as an entry-level dietitian across the dominant areas of practice (medical nutrition therapy, food service management, and community and public health nutrition).
