Course Overview

The Nutrition Implementation Coalition 

We are a coalition of non-profit organisations who believe we urgently need to raise the issue of a serious lack of nutrition training for healthcare professionals, leading to a largely neglected element of patient care and population health. As The Nutrition Implementation Coalition, we share ideas and expertise. We are independent organisations but with a shared goal to promote sustainable, ethical and evidence-based nutrition care including when to refer on to a dietitian or nutritionist.
