BANT Consultation on Draft Functional Dietetic Curriculum Framework – Closed on 24 February 2016

On 24 of November 2015, BANT launched a full public consultation on its curriculum framework for functional dietetic practice to meet the registration standards of the Health & Care Professions Council. The consultation ran for three months to 24 February 2016. We would like to thank all who responded. While most comments were technical in nature, we received contributions from the Nutrition Society, British Dietetic Association and the Association for Nutrition which we now publish, along with BANT’s comments.

Defining a ‘nutrient’ better fit for purpose in the age of genomics and metabolomics is now a priority.   We need a fuller biological description so that we can ask more questions, for example are there are other substances which should be classified as nutrients or is the concept of a ‘daily allowance’ suitable for all nutrients?
