Professional Diploma of Medical Nutrition Management program

  • : Online

Despite the prevalence of nutritional disorders and an increasing amount of evidence showing the significance of diet in disease prevention, medical practitioners are typically untrained in the relationship of nutrition to health and disease.

Quality-assured by Bond University, this three-part online program is tailored for medical practitioners who wish to gain a better understanding of nutrition management in order to improve patient outcomes, especially for those patients with conditions commonly seen in general practice, such as obesity, diabetes, pregnancy, cardiovascular disease, cancer and eating disorders.

The program explores the role of therapeutic diets in the treatment of chronic illnesses and other nutritional disorders, highlighting the principles of the nutrition care process as applicable in a primary care setting. You will learn key nutrition assessment techniques and intervention strategies that will assist you in providing comprehensive health care to your patients.
