NSDA Preparation for Strategic Planning Stakeholder Consultation

The Nova Scotia Dietetic Association (NSDA) is the regulatory body for dietitians in Nova Scotia. NSDA licenses dietitians and nutritionists in Nova Scotia. NSDA ensures dietitians and nutritionists are qualified and practice in a safe, competent, and ethical manner. NSDA also addresses public complaints about a dietitian’s practice.

In preparation for the NSDA Board to undertake a strategic planning process, the Board is seeking to engage stakeholders from the public, government, registrants, and other regulatory bodies. The input the Board is gathering will be considered as they set the direction for the future of NSDA.

Please take a few minutes to respond to the following questions. Your responses will be combined with all other input received and summarized. You will not be specifically identified.

Over the past years, NSDA has been focused on the following priorities:

#1 Regulation of Scope: To ensure the public receives safe and ethical care from competent registered dietitians and nutritionists.
#2 Effective Governance: To operate as an effective hybrid model of governance.
#3 Risk Management: An enterprise risk management system will be in place.
# 4 Communications and Marketing: Stakeholders are informed about the regulation of dietitians and nutritionists.

Much has been accomplished in these areas and more work remains to be done in some. The Annual Report describes NSDA’s most recent accomplishments.
