What ALL HEART HEALTH DIET & LIFESTYLE advisors need to be aware of
Are you providing diet and lifestyle advice to those concerned about heart health?
Could they have FH?
Are you up to speed with the latest dietary advice for FH?
Do you know how it differs from standard heart health dietary advice?
When surveyed recently by HEART UK, 32% of health professionals in lipid clinics felt that dietetic support was only fair or poor and only 9% rated it as excellent. In clinics with no dietetic support or in clinics referring to general practice services, patients may receive advice from dietitians who lack the experience specialist knowledge and support network required to treat the severe and complex cases of dyslipidaemias.
Could this FREE one hour CPD NutriWebinar on FH diet and lifestyle be for you?
