    • Health & Fitness

You might have heard the title primary care or first contact dietitian banded about in recent years, but how much do you know about the role? In today’s episode, we’re talking all things primary care dietetics, looking at everything from what promoted the shift to include dietitians in primary care settings and the benefit of this change to what the day-to-day role entails. Whether you’re considering moving into the role or just want to clue yourself up on this important area of dietetics, this interview is not one to miss! I’m delighted to be joined by Nusrat Kausar for today’s episode.
Nusrat is a registered dietitian and serves as the Clinical Director of Primary Care Dietitians, overseeing the support for dietitians across Primary Care Networks (PCNs) in England.
Additionally, Nusrat is a director at Nutribytes, an organisation dedicated to reducing health disparities through education.

Nusrat is an advocate for the dietetics profession, serving on the British Dietetic Association (BDA) England Board and the BDA Sport and Exercise Nutrition Register (SENR) Board. Recently, she assumed the role of Vice-Chair of the BDA Diabetes Specialist Group. Furthermore, Nusrat chairs the BDA sports and exercise diabetes sub-group and hosts the Type 1's Talk Sports podcast.

Nusrat is also involved in educating and mentoring the next generation of dietitians, working as a Special Visiting Lecturer at various dietetic universities across the United Kingdom.
