Webinar | Communication, Mentorship and Health Promotion in Dietetics

EALTHY & Specialist Language Courses

December 2023 | 2024 | Communication | EALTHY Blog | Webinar

During the webinar, Emma will discuss the needs of people with learning difficulties which lead to poor health outcomes, including dysphagia, diabetes, obesity, and ageing-related issues. She will talk about communication challenges when working with people with learning difficulties including clients who are non-verbal or who have difficulty understanding abstract ideas and give examples of ways that she has found to manage these challenges.

Emma will also talk about her new role as a Practice Support Mentor Lead supporting a range of allied healthcare professionals including international recruits, newly qualified and return to practice staff. She’ll outline the importance of mentorship of emerging allied healthcare professionals, particularly those who are neurodiverse and may need additional support. Finally, Emma will talk about the areas of dietetics she hopes may be focused on in the future, including health promotion programs and better understanding of modifiable risk factors from a dietary perspective.

Since qualifying as a Dietitian in 2012, Emma has worked in a range of acute and community settings, specialising in adult learning disabilities. Her current role is Practice Support Mentor Lead which encompasses support for AHP learners by making connections with current and potential placement providers and Higher Education Institutions.
