A 2015 study found that the cost of malnutrition in the UK was estimated to be £19.6 billion per year, accounting for about 30% of hospital admissions and 35% of care home admissions. Despite this, many doctors are still unable to give comprehensive nutritional advice to their patients and help them understand the impact of food on their health.
It is now more important than ever to meet this education gap in the medical curricula and help medical students and trainees develop their skills and knowledge in nutrition education. Join us as experts shed light on the importance and effective provision of nutrition education for future doctors.
Participants will be able to:
Understand the benefits of improved nutrition education for future doctors.
Value the impact that nutrition-savvy doctors can have on their patients and public health.
Know the principles of effective nutrition education.
Be inspired to lobby for greater nutrition education in medical curricula.
