COVID-19 changes to dietitian consultations
Fortunately, the Australian government has seen the need for non-face-to-face dietitian sessions (called ‘Telehealth’) to support the health of Australians.
With a doctor’s referral, eligible patients can now see dietitians via video consultation and/or over the phone from the comfort of their own home.
This is covered by Medicare, and in some cases the Department of Veterans Affairs, so long as the GP determines that you’re living with a chronic condition – for example, but not limited to:
- irritable bowel syndrome
- cardiovascular disease
- rheumatoid arthritis
- patients on an Eating Disorder Management Plan (EDMP)
These dietitian consultations are currently bulk billed and this applies to new and existing patients.
I’m also seeing private paying patients via telehealth too. You don’t need a doctors referral for these consultations, and those with private health may be eligible for a rebate.
Specialist areas include
(male & female)
Weight loss, diabetes & heart health
What can you expect during a consultation
I want to understand your relevant diet and medical history, your current meal pattern, home/work environment and food psychology.
I then provide individualised nutrition and lifestyle advice, combined with mindset, habit change and motivation therapy. This may include:
- meal proportioning/structuring advice
- a targeted meal plan
- tools to help reduce emotional/stress eating
- mindset therapy
- addressing existing habits
- education on diet-disease relationship
- altering your home and/or work environment
Nick currently sees clients via telehealth, and limited* in-person availability in his private rooms at Ellen Health
*Ellen Health is a ‘green zone’, with staff screening patients at booking and before entry. However, wherever possible, the practice is encouraging the use of telehealth.
