We assess and manage each patient individually and provide intervention and education for patients who require special dietary modifications, nourishing diets and fluids, enteral or parenteral nutrition.

Food Service

The dietetics department works closely with catering to ensure that special dietary, religious and cultural requirements of the RPBG patients are met. Our dietitian’s regularly audit the meal delivery process and quality to ensure food safety and nutrition standards are met.

Teaching and Training

The RPBG dietetics department has a good relationship with both Curtin University and Edith Cowan University. The department is integral to clinical teaching and training of Masters dietetic students at both universities.
