In recent weeks, HRS Communications had the privilege of attending three influential industry events: Digital Health Rewired, BDA Industry Specialist Group Study Day, and the Nutritionists in Industry Event. Each gathering provided unique insights and opportunities for learning, shaping our perspective on the evolving landscape of healthcare and nutrition. Here are some key takeaways from our experiences:

Digital Health Rewired

Attending Digital Health Rewired was an enlightening journey into the realm of digital transformation within healthcare. We were particularly inspired by the NHS’s commitment to embracing digital innovations to enhance patient care and streamline clinical workflows. Witnessing the array of innovative solutions from leading brands showcased at the event reinforced our belief in the power of technology to revolutionise healthcare delivery.

BDA Industry Specialist Group Study Day

Mindset Matters: One of the crucial lessons emphasized during this event was the importance of resilience and mindset in navigating the challenges of the industry. We learned the value of leaning on our support networks, with platforms like LinkedIn proving to be indispensable resources for professional growth.

Supporting Student Learning: Another key insight was the shared responsibility of all dietitians to support student learning, regardless of their sector. Both industry professionals and students have valuable perspectives to offer, enriching the learning experience for all involved.

Diverse Career Paths: Contrary to common belief, clinical dietetic experience is not a prerequisite for success in the food industry. The event highlighted that dietitians can forge successful careers in various sectors, leveraging their expertise in different ways to contribute meaningfully to the field.

HCPC Standards and Audits: For dietitians working in the food industry, adherence to relevant HCPC standards is essential. However, it was reassuring to learn that industry professionals are only required to meet standards relevant to their scope of work. Moreover, in the event of an audit, professionals have ample time to prepare, easing potential concerns.

These events served as invaluable platforms for networking, learning, and gaining fresh perspectives on the intersections of health, technology, and nutrition. As HRS Communications continues to navigate this dynamic landscape, we remain committed to leveraging these insights to drive positive change and innovation in our field.

Nutritionists in Industry: Navigating Nutrition Communications

The Nutritionists in industry event took place on 15th March around the topic of nutrition communications. Topics covered included nutrition in the media, nutrition horizon scanning and exploring the best communication practices for nutrition professionals. It was fantastic to catch-up with industry professionals, especially previous Dietitian Café guests Charlotte Stirling-Reed, Claire Baseley and Louise Durrant. Charlotte gave an informative talk on navigating social media communications and Claire took part in a speaker Q&A focussing on health claims, a subject of increasing importance.
