Project Stakeholder Event

Nutrition and Health Inequalities Project aims to improve nutrition skills in the wider health workforce

Association for Nutrition (AfN) explores development of a broader quality assurance framework.

The Nutrition and Health Inequalities Project, hosted by the AfN, held a prestigious stakeholder event at the Royal Society in London. Key stakeholders and partners, including AfN’s UK Voluntary Register of Nutritionists and representatives from government, the Department of Health, academia, industry and various professional bodies attended.

At the Stakeholder Event, the following topics were discussed;

·         The Project aims and initiatives

·         Current activities and tasks

·         Future Plans and further work

Speaking at the event, Stefanie Radford, AfN Project Manager, explained some of the intended outputs:
"The first big challenge is how to distinguish between those who possess sufficient knowledge, skill and judgement and those who don’t. This Project aims to provide the answers to the limits of capacity of front line staff, especially those who interact with disadvantaged and deprived communities where the greatest risk of ill health lies. It will make them aware of the nature of the competences possessed by Registered Nutritionists and how guidance can be obtained from such professionals when needed.”
