NATIONAL OCCUPATIONAL STANDARDS (NOS)
The National Occupational Standards (NOS) for Nutritional Therapy were developed by Skills for Health and updated in 2009
This competence is about providing Nutritional Therapy to clients, working within the context of the most up to date Nutritional Therapy Descriptor.
The scope of practice for Nutritional Therapy excludes artificial (parenteral/enteral) feeding and dietary management of acute life threatening states, e.g. intestinal or renal failure, and injury trauma.
Users of this competence will need to ensure that practice reflects up to date information and policies.
