Part of a team of health-care professionals, registered dietitians assess the nutrition status of workers and identify opportunities for improvement. They provide nutrition education and counselling in group or individual settings.
Dietitians recommend nutrition-based strategies to promote overall health as well as manage specific conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease. Their work helps improve overall worker recovery, including safe and early return to work.
WorkSafeNB has a consultant dietitian based at its rehabilitation centre.
