Scientific evidence has shown that food choices and certain supplements can improve health and symptoms of disease. As a result, many Americans are self-prescribing and spending in excess of $30 billion annually on herbal and dietary supplements to address their health concerns. It is important for health care providers to receive timely, evidence-based information in order to address the risks and benefits of supplements with their patients. In this dynamic partnership with patients, providers also need information about regulatory issues, dosing and product potency. To address these needs, world-renowned faculty will present a concise, clinically relevant overview of natural supplements in evidence-based practice, with an emphasis on disease states. As part of this informative and comprehensive CME conference, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a full day of highly interactive workshops in order to fine tune clinical applications. This medical education event is a must-attend for anyone wanting to acquire a wide-range of knowledge and expertise for addressing and managing dietary supplement use.
This course is intended for physicians, naturopathic doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses, nurse midwives, acupuncturists, chiropractors, dietitians, pharmacists, physician assistants, psychologists and any other health care professional who makes nutritional recommendations or manages dietary supplement use.
