Nutritional approaches are touted as having the ability to influence health and disease. As a result, 59 million Americans are self-prescribing and spending in excess of $30 billion annually on herbal and dietary supplements to address their health concerns. It is important for health care providers to receive timely, evidence-based information in order to address the risks and benefits of supplements with their patients. In this dynamic partnership with patients, providers also need information about regulatory issues, drug-nutrient interactions, dosing and product potency. To address these needs, world-renowned faculty will present clinically relevant information on natural supplements in evidence-based practice, with an emphasis on disease states. This conference will also provide health practitioners with an understanding of the central role of nutrition in health and healing and provide a scientific basis for the integration of nutrition and medicine in order to practice preventive and therapeutic nutritional medicine.
After attending this live activity, participants should be able to:
- Recognize the potential role of supplements in preventive medicine and in the management of common medical conditions.
- Judge the regulatory aspects of the supplement industry and their implications for clinical and research practice.
- Discuss current research and literature related to natural supplements.
- Examine, through evidence-based summaries, key supplements used in clinical practice, including their indications, side effects, interactions and contraindications.
- Formulate a patient care treatment program that integrates supplements in preventive medicine and in the management of common medical conditions.
- Access and/or recommend resources for acquiring additional supplement related information for the clinician or patient.
- Increase proper supplement usage by patients by involving the patient as an active partner in care, with an emphasis on patient education, acceptance and compliance.
- Incorporate nutritional information into clinical practice and advise patients about eating for optimum health as well as using dietary change as a therapeutic intervention.
- Evaluate the benefits and risks of nutritional recommendations for specific health conditions through an analysis of the existing scientific and clinical evidence.
