Why Attend

It’s easy to list foods in our diet and say whether they’re good for us or not, right? But – is it true? Is good or not true for all of us? And in what context, specifically? And, most importantly – WHY? As a population, we need to ask; how exactly is diet linked to disease? The growing relationship between chronic illness and food means that, increasingly, nurses are required to know how and why a person’s health needs to change. Modern thinking now suggests that striving to improve health is no longer as simple as “input versus output”. Attend this conference to learn how diet and disease are actually linked. Find out how you can realistically enable your patients to improve their health. Discover:

  • Why everything we put in our mouths is within our control
  • Obesity – is the brain addicted
  • Nutrition and the immune system
  • The link between weight gain and medicines
  • Therapeutic diets and much, much more…

The Goal

Need for Program

The established connections between chronic illness and food mean that, increasingly, nurses are required to explain and engage with patients to meaningfully improve their health. This ability to recognise and act on clinical indicators of impaired health as a result of diet is becoming a key feature of modern nursing. Nurses need to demonstrate nutritional literacy so as to assist a person to improve their health outcomes and importantly to prevent and. in some cases, treat their disease. As people, often with the same questions and struggles as their patients, there’s a timely need time to empower nurses to help themselves, in order to help others.

Purpose of Program

The purpose of this conference is to examine the link between diet and disease and integrate this knowledge into nursing practice so as to improve health outcomes for patients.

Your learning outcomes:

Understand the link between certain eating patterns and chronic illness and how this is relevant to your patient
Know how to utilise nutrition assessment tools to assist in the identification and improvement of a patient’s health status
Explain which health behaviours are the most influential in improving long-term health and chronic disease management
Combine holistic nursing and health coaching principles to engage with patients and enable them to improve their health outcomes
