Role Statements

A Role Statement is a paper written for people other than dietitians to explain the consensus view of dietitians on the role of dietitians in a specialty field. A Role Statement is the official view of EFAD on the Role of the Dietitian in a Specialty Field and can be used by governments or others to inform and/or update laws, regulations or protocols.

Purpose of a Role Statement
