Nutrition-Focused Physical Exam - Part 1: Subcutaneous Fat and Muscle Loss
This is part 1 of a 2-part course. In this part, you’ll review the prevalence of malnutrition and identification of adult malnutrition; discuss how to evaluate muscle and fat losses in adult patients; and watch demonstrations on how to assess changes in body composition using the nutrition-focused physical exam.
Pediatric Nutrition Focused Physical Exam
In this course, you’ll explain the rationale for completing a nutrition focused physical exam (NFPE) in pediatric patients; discuss the role of NFPE in identifying malnutrition; identify clinical signs of common nutrient deficiencies and toxicities; and assess hydration status.
Body Composition and Health: Module 1
In part 1 of this 2-part series, you’ll define body composition and review its terminology; differentiate between body mass index and body composition; summarize body composition assessment techniques; and more.
Body Composition and Health: Module 2
In part 2 of this 2-part series, you’ll summarize the five-level model of human body composition; list body composition techniques associated with each level of the model; demonstrate how to use bioelectrical impedance analysis and CT scans to assess body composition in clinical practice; and more.
An Allergy Modulating Human Milk Oligosaccharide: 2'Fucosyllactose
In this course, you’ll review clinical studies supporting the immune benefits of 2'-fucosyllactose human milk oligosaccharide (2'-FL HMO); discuss preclinical evidence of 2'-FL HMO effects on food allergy and potential mechanisms of action; and describe the possible role of 2'-FL HMO in enhancing oral tolerance. Originally presented as a live webinar on June 3, 2020.
What’s New in Nutrition for Cancer: Practical Guidance for the Busy Clinician
In this course, Carla Prado, PhD, RD, and Nelda Swinton, MSc, RD interpret the results of new scientific literature on the effects of nutrition during cancer treatment; discuss best practices based on key messages from new clinical guidelines; and evaluate how to adopt recommendations into practice.
Global Consensus Statement on the Impact of Medical Nutrition Therapy and Diabetes-Specific Formulas
In this course, you’ll learn about the role of medical nutrition therapy and diabetes-specific nutritional formulas (DSNF) to improve outcomes in people with diabetes; discuss the need for global consensus on the use of medical nutrition therapy for people with diabetes; and review the new global consensus statement on the impact of medical nutrition therapy and DSNF on metabolic and cardiovascular risk factors. Originally presented as a live webinar on June 24, 2021.
Assessing Body Composition To Optimize Growth
In this course, you’ll identify body composition assessment tools for pediatric patients; discuss the need for early identification of nutritional risk; review nutrition interventions to support catch-up growth; and describe the causes and consequences of faltering growth and windows of opportunity for catch-up growth. Originally presented at the Nutrition & Growth Conference on 27 August 2020.
The Role of 2´-FL in Inflammation and the Possible Role in Food Allergy
In this course, you’ll identify research on how 2′-FL HMO helps narrow differences between formula and breast milk; review clinical studies supporting HMOs in immune support; and discuss why 2′-FL HMO may be relevant for the dietary management of infants with food allergy. Originally presented as a live webinar on April 7, 2021.
Human Milk Oligosaccharides: Mechanisms of Action and Emerging Science
In this course, David R Hill, PhD, defines the role of human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) in infant development and health; discusses insights into the mechanism of action of HMOs; and summarizes the preclinical evidence supporting the impact of HMOs on cognition, gut health, and immunity.
