Overview

In recent years, there has been a surge of interest and corresponding research in using nutrition therapy, including eating patterns, to improve metabolic health and alter the course of chronic disease. Nutrition science, however, can be a highly contentious field. 
How do health professionals navigate practice change in consideration of emerging evidence for using nutrition therapeutically? In an era of personalized medicine and fad diets, how can they safely support patients to take a ‘food first’ approach when ‘one size does not fit all’?  

Plan to be a part of Canada’s first Therapeutic Nutrition conference where national and international leaders will share their expertise, offer practical tips, and discuss clinically relevant research as it relates to a variety of ‘food first’ approaches.  

Registration is open to physicians, dietitians, nutritionists, pharmacists, nurses, and other allied health professionals. This is not a public event.

 

Registration opening in March 2020!

 

ABOUT US

The Institute for Personalized Therapeutic Nutrition (IPTN)

https://www.therapeuticnutrition.org/ 

The IPTN is a not-for-profit collaboration between researchers, academics, practitioners and health decision-makers. The IPTN was started in 2016 to advance the idea of personalized, therapeutic nutrition and to foster a 'food first' culture in Canada for treating chronic diseases and has worked to close the research-practice gap for health professionals by translating evidence into educational programs to support practice change.  The IPTN also advocates for therapeutic nutrition as a fundamental and required aspect of patient care. Adoption of a 'food first' approach to treating chronic diseases has the potential to reduce unnecessary suffering and health care costs, and dramatically improve health outcomes and quality of life for Canadians.
