Our case studies are based on real life fitness to practise concerns we have received. They illustrate the types of issues that are taken into consideration by a panel when deciding if a registrant’s fitness to practise is impaired, and if so what sanction to apply.
|Type of concern||Failure to maintain adequate records|
Standards of proficiency for dietitians (updated in March 2013)
