EFAD newsflash: How Swedish dietitians are implementing National Guidelines for Disease Prevention


EFAD LOFODear Delegates,

this week’s newsflash comes from Sweden, where dietitians have been funded to implement National Guidelines for Disease Prevention.

The overall aims for the project are:

• Collaboration with other health care professions

• All dietitians in the health care system should have knowledge of the new guidelines and exhibit a health promoting attitude

• Serve as means to boost the level of knowledge in the field of healthy eating habits among other professions


More information is given in the attached document. Elisabet will talk about the project during the EFAD General Meeting on 22/23 October 2015 in Amsterdam (please note the date – invitations will follow soon).


Kindest regards




Judith Liddell

EFAD Secretary General
