[Online lecture] Gut health and nutrition

In this online lecture, Dietitian Josh Reed talks about gut health and the management of related conditions in primary care, including how to recognise symptoms and plan treatment recommendations.

Josh discusses what gut health actually encompasses and what good gut health looks like, including all the factors a GP needs to consider for a comprehensive picture of a patient’s gut health. He breaks down the five major criteria general practitioners should consider when putting together a medical nutrition plan for patients with GI issues.

Josh explains how digestion and absorption works, including the anatomy and physiology of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.

The online lecture also covers the different GI issues that patients can experience and what role dietitians play in managing these issues, including how and when GPs can refer to a dietitian.
