Final Assignment (Part 1 and Part 2)

In order to complete the program in Advanced Nutritional Medicine and Sports Nutrition Specialist there are two final assignments that must be completed.

 

Part 1 Assignment

The Part 1 Final Assignment involves answering multiple choice questions from assigned reading materials from the textbook “Krause’s Food and Nutrition Care Process – 13th Edition”. These reading assignments cover topics that were not presented in the formal power point lecture series in this program and address the following important subject matter:

  1. Minerals
  2. Nutrition in Pregnancy and Lactation
  3. Nutrition in Infancy
  4. Genetically-inherited diseases of metabolism affecting carbohydrates, lipid and amino acids (questions require independent research)

Minerals

The required reading material to answer the questions on Minerals is derived from pages 91-128 (within chapter 3) in the Textbook Krause’s Food and the Nutrition Care Process (13th edition) – Hardcover. By L. Kathleen Mahan MS RD CDE (Author), Janice L Raymond MS RD CD (Author). If you can find these answers in other standard nutrition textbooks or elsewhere you are welcome to do so.


Nutrition in Pregnancy and Lactation 

The required reading material to answer the questions on Nutrition in Pregnancy and Lactation  is derived from pages 340-374 (within chapter 16) in the Textbook Krause’s Food and the Nutrition Care Process (13th edition) – Hardcover. By L. Kathleen Mahan MS RD CDE (Author), Janice L Raymond MS RD CD (Author). If you can find these answers in other standard nutrition textbooks or elsewhere you are welcome to do so.


Nutrition and Infancy

The required reading material to answer the questions in Nutrition and Infancy is derived from pages 375-388 (within chapter 17) in the Textbook Krause’s Food and the Nutrition Care Process (13th edition) – Hardcover. By L. Kathleen Mahan MS RD CDE (Author), Janice L Raymond MS RD CD (Author). If you can find these answers in other standard nutrition textbooks or elsewhere you are welcome to do so.


Genetically-inherited diseases of metabolism affecting carbohydrates, lipid and amino acids

22D. Section 22D involves questions about Genetically-inherited diseases of metabolism affecting carbohydrates, lipid and amino acids. Some independent research is required to answer these questions.

 

Part 2 Assignment

The Part 2 assignment involves completing a series of patient/client nutrition and lifestyle assessments and providing customized nutrition and lifestyle recommendations for each case. This assignment demonstrates your proficiency in evaluating the patient’s health status, and using your best evidence-based judgement to construct a customized nutrition and lifestyle plan to enhance the patient/client’s health and improve their chances of achieving their intended goals as well as a more optimal healthy life expectancy.

I have included some basic patient intake forms and forms that can be used by the health practitioner to record the Case History, Anthropometric exam findings, and Dietary and Lifestyle Recommendations, which can help simplify the process. It is mandatory that at least in one case some basic blood work interpretation be included in the assessment and target blood values be identified as part of the intended outcomes pertaining to the nutrition and lifestyle program recommended to the patient/client. For the sake of anonymity and privacy protection the patient/client’s name and address must be whited out or blotted out or made to be illegible, prior to submitting these forms. In each case your nutrition and lifestyle recommendations should include the following subheadings:

  • Dietary Recommendations (with brief justification)
  • Supplement Recommendations (with brief justification)
  • Exercise Recommendations (with brief justification)
  • Recommended Further Tests or Referrals (if appropriate, and brief justification)
  • Other Recommendations – if appropriate (i.e. meditation, sleep hygiene etc., with brief justification)
  • Intended Follow-up (explanation of your intended patient/client follow-up and monitoring, based on their specific health status, health goals and objective findings from physical exam and lab tests)

Note: All Case Studies are to be submitted online to the Global Integrative Medicine Academy. We suggest that you print the provided intake and practitioner forms. Have your patients/clients complete the intake forms and the health practitioner completes the health practitioner forms.  Once all your case studies are completed they are to be scanned and uploaded to the Global Integrative Medicine Academy to be evaluated.

Program Completion, Certificates and Designation Application

Once you have completed the Part 1 and Part 2 Assignments in Section 22 (and received a passing grade on both) you will be notified, upon which you will receive two signed certificates of completion, with your name and date on them, from the Global Integrative Medicine Academy:
1. Advanced Nutritional Medicine

  1. Sports Nutrition Specialist

In addition, we will notify the International Organization of Nutritional Consultants (IONC) that you have completed this pre-requisite program enabling you to apply to the IONC to become a member, upon which they will issue you a registration number, with an accompanying signed certificate with the designation of either Registered Nutritional Consultant Practitioner (RNCP) and/or Registered Orthomolecular Health Practitioner (ROHP), depending upon your preference. You can discuss those details with the IONC at the appropriate time. We will put you in touch with IONC to ensure that this process goes smoothly so that you can become an RNCP and/or ROHP as soon as possible after the Global Integrative Medicine Academy program has been completed.
