Is the answer to optimum health and wellbeing really all in the genes?
Can genetics alter the way our body responds to foods or influence nutrition requirements?
Do foods, lifestyle or nutritional supplements we consume modify gene expression or compensate for their effects?
How strong is the evidence about the impact of specific gene variations on health, to aid clinical decision-making?
Which health claims about nutrigenomics are clinically justifiable versus lacking credibility?
What is known about the interactions between different gene variants, and why does it matter?
Are commercially available genetic tests reliable, and what do you need to consider when choosing tests, or interpreting their results?
Could planned changes in the regulation, delivery and availability of genetic screening in the UK influence clinical nutrition scope of practice? What do we know so far?
Across 10x monthly video-streaming lectures, this course will refresh and build-upon foundational genetics to introduce the essential knowledge required to make evidence-based decisions about nutrigenomics in clinical practice. The course assumes you will be a healthcare practitioner or final year student with a good foundation in nutrition.
Each video will be released monthly to stream (but not download) as many times as you need throughout the course duration. You will receive permanent copies of the slides.
