We are seeing an increasing number of patients with a complexity of signs and symptoms presenting in our clinics. Chronic diseases are the leading causes of burden of disease and are the leading cause of illness, disability and death in Australia, accounting for 90% of all deaths in 2011. Patients can present with multiple, well-defined chronic illnesses, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, depression, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), chronic fatigue syndrome, osteoarthritis, and osteoporosis. MTHFR and Pyrrole disorder further complicate the management of these conditions. Sometimes diseases may occur in combination and represent the greatest challenge to practitioners.
• This comprehensive masterclass will enable practitioners to greatly expand their scope of understanding of the diagnosis, pathophysiology and clinical signs of chronic disease.
• In this masterclass, you will develop skills and confidence in the treatment and management of chronic disease, MTHFR and Pyrrole disorder. In addition, strategies will be discussed on how to improve clinical outcomes in complex patients.
• Successful case studies will be presented throughout.
• This masterclass will benefit new and established practitioners as well as students to consolidate their learning.
There are a number of learning outcomes for this Nutritional Medicine Masterclass – Chronic Disease. These learning outcomes will provide the content for the masterclass. These learning outcomes include, but not limited to, the following.
• Identify the leading causes of chronic disease.
• Identify and name the markers of increased chronic disease risk and other key clinical factors.
