Productive and multidisciplinary workplace
Working for the Department of Health is wonderful. The working hours are reasonable, the workplace is not stressed and working with other health professionals makes it a fun workplace. The supervisors are helpful as well as the facility managers. I gained a lot of practical knowledge about certain disease conditions and practical experience about the treatments as well as protocols and standards. I really enjoy working in the community as a dietician.

Great work enviroment
Working at a community level requires passion, I loved the fact that I could initiate nutrition interventions that change peoples lives. I worked with the whole medical team i.e. Doctors, nurses, allied health and it taught me to be patient because they don't see or view nutrition the way I do, the way dietitians do, so to manage the situation I would do an in-service training time to time. In my time spent at this job I realized my strengths and weakness, I enjoy speaking to people, preparing for health talks and trainings, and I'm good at it. I find it natural to relate to my patients and some of my co-workers, I have to admit that communication is very key and listening is the main ingredient. The hardest part of the job is that you need to be self-motivated, because some challenges can be overwhelming, having a mentor or someone who understands what you go through could be helpful and you might not get someone like that at a community level.
Pros
working at my own pace and setting my own targets.
Cons
limmited resources

productive workplace.
A typical day at work included seeing various clients with various medical conditions and providing them with the appropriate nutritional support services required. Community outreach was also done and quite enjoyable to ensure those who are unable to attend clinics are also up to date with immunizations, given health education and updated with the latest information regarding various conditions. I have learnt how to put into practice the various theories I have learnt at University and how to work productively with various health professionals and also how to deal with different clients. With regards to management. There is a definite lack or organization and communication, however all individuals within management were always easy to approach and very helpful and knowledgeable. My experience with co-workers was always pleasant and I have learnt a lot from the people I have worked with thus far. The hardest part of my job was not always being appreciated by clients for the services provided and also having to battle continuously with issues relating to a lack of communication with management. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping others and ensuring that a difference was made in as many peoples lives, relating to health and nutrition, in order to better their lifestyles and the lives of others around them.
Pros
excellent team work, reasonable working hours
