dc.description.abstract Since 1993, dramatic changes have occurred in dietetic practice in Long-Term Care (LTC) facilities across Canada. A timeline, based on document review, of these changes was created that explored how Canadian dietitians (RDs) continue to make a difference in LTC facilities. Fifteen semi-structured telephone interviews were conducted to obtain historical perspectives from key informant RDs in LTC. All recorded interviews were transcribed by NVIVO and analyzed by thematic analysis. Seven themes were generated from interviews including regulatory changes, population and patient factors, advocacy, changes in RDs’ roles and responsibilities, challenges, team functions, and coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19). The timeline was updated with information from key informants. The features of an online timeline plugin were assessed for posting this timeline, and those in the larger history project, online. Overall, this research updated Canadian dietetic history of LTC facilities over the past 28 years and provided future direction for improving RD roles in this field. en_US
