158532 - Neuroinflammatory Conditions

  • : Online

This training event aims to provide insight into the role of nutritional and environmental medicine and its influence on the underlying physiological issues that contribute to neurodegeneration. Conditions such as Alzheimer's Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease and depression will be presented by industry experts. Growing scientific evidence behind the treatment options, pathology testing, dietary interventions and environmental remediation techniques will be presented.

Relevance to General Practice

Neurodegeneration occurs with the associated hallmarks of the loss of neuronal structure and function. Neurodegenerative diseases and conditions include Alzheimer's disease, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease. Many recent studies indicate the inflammatory process as being closely linked with multiple neurodegenerative pathways and patients with chronic inflammation are often associated with the emergence of depression symptoms. 
Growing evidence indicates that nutrients and environmental factors are strongly associated with the generation of inflammation. Nutritional factors such as certain natural compounds and nutraceuticals may also have vital functions in both repair and in protecting cells from inflammatory-related disease and neuronal damage. The primary care role of a GP represents an opportunity opportunity for the promotion of risk-reducing lifestyle, nutrition and diet behaviours, as well as in the management of the various presentations of mental and brain health.

Learning outcomes
  • Describe the impact of inflammation on the central nervous system.
  • Explain the detrimental influence of the built environment on the central nervous system.
  • Identify the role of diet, nutrition and the environment in the management of chronic inflammatory conditions.
  • Identify the role of diet and lifestyle in the prevention of neurodegenerative conditions.
  • Develop a systems-based approach for evidence-informed nutritional interventions for patients with, or at risk of developing, neurodegenerative disease.
