Aboriginal Food Security in Northern Canada: An assessment of the state of knowledge
Role paper discussing the special healthcare needs of Canadian Aboriginal communities and how Registered Dietitians (RDs) can play a role in bridging those needs. The paper was compiled by the Aboriginal Nutrition Network (ANN) of Dietitians of Canada (DC). Evidence-based case studies and examples are used to illustrate key messages on the roles and qualifications of RDs in health and nutrition management for chronic diseases, capacity building specific to the aboriginal community, and nutrition services throughout the life cycle. The goal of the paper is to present information to encourage advocacy efforts to increase funding for dietitian services to improve community health.
