Conference Overview

Scientific evidence has shown that food choices and certain dietary supplements can improve health and symptoms of disease. As a result, many 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, it is also crucial that providers are also aware of regulatory issues, dosing, and product potency. To address these needs, world-renowned faculty will present a concise, clinically relevant overview of natural supplements in evidence-based practice, with an emphasis on disease states. This conference is a must-attend for anyone wanting to acquire a wide-range of knowledge and expertise for addressing and managing dietary supplement use.

Educational Objectives

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.

  • 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.
