Navigating nutrition and the NDIS
Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or a complete novice, this half-day face-to-face workshop will help you in providing the best support for your NDIS clients. You’ll leave with a well-rounded perspective of the NDIS after hearing from a panel of speakers, including a hospital-based and community-based dietitian, along with an NDIS worker and NDIS participant. Within the workshop, you’ll explore the ins and outs of NDIS pathways, learn tips and tricks for supporting a successful NDIS plan and understand how dietitians can help meet the needs of their NDIS patients. We’ll finish the day with networking and a panel discussion that explores practical strategies for working effectively within this ever-growing, complex space.

Culinary nutrition workshop
Applying sensory science to change eating behaviour
Ever considered how sight, sound and aroma affect consumption? Or why textures like crispy, crunchy or squeaky make eating more enjoyable? Join us in our face-to-face culinary nutrition workshop with Emma Stirling and the culinary nutrition science team from Australian Catholic University to explore how dietitians can masterfully bring together the science of nutrition and the art of cooking. In this half-day workshop, you’ll learn how dietitians can influence the context and experience of eating to help change perceptions and behaviour around food. The workshop will start with a taste of the theory of sensory science and an expert culinary demonstration. You’ll then don your apron to cook, plate and style irresistible healthy food, before sitting down to enjoy your creations while networking. Get in quick – there are only 50 spots available.
