COMPLETE this short On-line Survey and WIN!

Dear Dietitian,
You are invited to volunteer to participate in a research project investigating the research orientation of South African registered dietitians. We would like you to complete an online questionnaire. This may take about 10 minutes.

The purpose of the study is to determine SA dietitians' research orientation, consisting of four (4) components, namely valuing research, research involvement, evidence-based practice and being at the leading edge of the profession.

The findings will be used to enhance the training of undergraduate and postgraduate dietetic students in research.

Lucky draw:
All participants who voluntarily provide their contact details will automatically be entered into a lucky draw. Two participants will each get an Electronic baby scale and portable Baby Length Board.
