Dietitians across Europe are fighting the COVID-19 pandemic in many different ways and settings.
EFAD wishes to support its Members, Stakeholders and the public with the following:
- Role of Dietitians in the fight against COVID-19 EFAD Briefing Paper
- Press Release
- EuDAP database
EFAD has collated, and in some cases translated (using Google Translate), all the information we have received from our members to help dietitians, and other health professionals across Europe, to offer optimal nutritional support to patients with COVID-19 virus. We will continue to add information as we receive it.
