Directory of nutrition activities on the island of Ireland

Project Reference: 04-RESR-14

Status: Completed

Commencement Date: January, 2001

Project Duration: 6 months


Through discussions with key stakeholders in the nutrition field on the Island of Ireland the need for an all island directory of nutrition activities was identified. Dieticians form the largest stakeholder group in nutrition on the island of Ireland. The Irish Nutrition & Dietetic Institute (INDI) was commissioned to carry out the project. The first phase in the development of the directory was the creation of a database of activities in the dietetics field (acute, primary care, health promotion and research) activities in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

The outcomes of this project have formed the core of a directory of all nutrition activities on the island, with the overall aim of providing health professionals and other key stakeholders in the nutrition field with a valuable information resource that will facilitate exchange of information and collaboration.
