Dietitians are the clinical nutrition experts. Highly qualified and legally regulated, they are the only
professionals specifically trained to support the nutrition and hydration needs of acutely and chronically ill
people with a wide range of conditions and to monitor the nutritional status of populations at risk,
including older adults and people with food insecurity. This briefing outlines the core role that dietitians
are playing in the response to COVID-19, from the frontline in acute care to population level advice and
support in acute community care, primary care, food service and education.
