Event description


The Low FODMAP Diet in Practice

A CPD Seminar for Health Professionals

The low FODMAP diet provides effective symptom management in up to 70% of people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). This dietary approach is considered current best practice in IBS management and is recommended by the UK National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and the British Dietetics Association. FODMAP Friendly, in combination with a range of IBS and FODMAP experts, is running CPD events for health professionals about the low FODMAP diet that meet the requirements for assessed CPD with APRA, DAA, NSA, and ANTA. You will learn about critical diagnostic tests and their use, when to recommend a low FODMAP diet, how the low FODMAP diet works, and key resources that can be used to assist patients following a low FODMAP diet.


Health Professionals who are interested in learning more about the low FODMAP diet and how it can be used to help their patients/clients.
