Skip to 0 minutes and 10 seconds What this course is designed to do is address that gap between what we know and what we know works and how to implement it in clinical practise in a way that has great benefits for patients. In week one of the course, we will set the scene and explore the latest evidence showing the impact of diet. We will review the current recommendations for the use of dietary interventions in mental health. In week two, we explore biological mechanisms and systems that explain how diet is impacting psychiatric symptoms, pathways such as inflammation and gut-brain axis. We will unpack diet and microbiota-related treatment options.
Skip to 0 minutes and 59 seconds In week three, we will review barriers and motivators of dietary change, discuss how to communicate diet-related messages in your practise, how to keep a positive outlook and reflect and evaluate. I think we are going to see yet more change, such that lifestyle medicine is going to become a core integrated element into the clinical care of patients. You will learn from other researchers and practitioners who will bring their knowledge of nutritional psychiatry and discuss how it can be translated into clinical practise. Throughout the course, we will be referring to papers and scientific sources that provide additional evidence in this very fast-growing area of research. We will also share links and downloadable resources that will support your practise.
