About the course
This course, aimed at Nutritional Therapists and other healthcare practitioners, will be looking at nutrition-focused laboratory assessments tools: When and why to order, how to interpret them, what the latest evidence suggests should be an ideal reference range for optimised interpretation and how to choose the right test - and testing provider.
New practitioners and final year students of nutrition will find this especially helpful, though the course will also aim to offer a refresh to more experienced practitioners and to update current evidence around diagnostic tools.
Mainstream pathology testing as well as private and functional testing will be discussed - including a critical look at many tests to help prioritise the tests that offer the best value for money for your patients and give you the most useful tools for clinical practice.
Over 10x 2 hour sessions will provide you up to 20 hours CPD. There is the option to attend in the weekday during the day time or at the weekend.
Full course attendance for 20 hours is £300. It is not possible to purchase individual dates as standalone events.
Non-clinicians may find the course of interest if they have a special interest in healthcare and have some foundations in healthcare pathophysiology already. The course will be aimed at a graduate level so will be more suited to those who already have some biology, biochemistry or pathology background.
