Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine Assessment and Programs

Length of Course:  2 hours 51 minutes

 

 

Health practitioners recognize that nutrition, exercise and targeted nutritional supplements play an important role in optimizing health status, and are often used in conjunction with medical treatment in the management of many health conditions. This course outlines a comprehensive, systematic and clinically-relevant nutrition and lifestyle assessment, which enables practitioners to make personalized, evidence-based dietary, exercise and supplementation recommendations to their clients. Attendees learn how to quickly and efficiently gather all clinically-relevant data that are essential to a proper nutrition, lifestyle/healthy aging evaluation, which include the individual’s age, gender, dietary patterns, signs and symptoms of nutrient deficiencies, lifestyle factors that deplete specific nutrients, present or recurring health conditions, family history of degenerative health conditions, as well as other important lab findings and other health indicators. The assessment also takes in to account all contra-indications to dietary and supplement recommendations, as well as drug-nutrient interactions, to guard against inappropriate or dangerous nutrition, exercise or supplementation recommendations being made. An understanding of the medical management of common conditions is also included to help practitioners understand medical decision-making processes.In addition, this course also reviews again the baseline blood, urine, and other investigations that the patient should have performed by their family doctor, as a means to achieve
