NUTR71-118: International Nutrition Practice

Description

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.
