The Dietetics Career Development Guide is now available on the Academy website. The Guide uses the Dreyfus Model of Skill Acquisition to illustrate how a practitioner can increase levels of knowledge and skill throughout a career. Through life-long learning and professional development, practitioners acquire and develop skills that lead to increased competencies and levels of practice. The Council on Future Practice has created a web page to provide members with the Dietetics Career Development Guide, definitions of terms used in the Guide, definition of focus area of practice, specialist practice and advanced practice.
