Submitted to the Australian Heart Foundation.

Dietitians Australia welcomed the opportunity to provide expertise on the draft guideline for assessing and managing Cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk.

Key to the guideline is the recommendation to encourage patients to access support from and/or general practitioners to provide a referral to an Accredited Practicing Dietitian. We strongly support this recommendation.

Dietitians Australia also strongly supports the focus of the guideline on the importance of a healthy diet and its impact on preventing and controlling chronic diseases including CVDs.
