Education

Doctors For Nutrition are working to address the issue of 'nutrition education deficiency' that is holding back healthcare.

Despite wanting to receive nutrition education to develop knowledge, skills, and confidence to counsel patients, many healthcare professionals are not adequately supported to provide effective nutrition care to patients.

Some healthcare professionals reflexively advise patients against plant-based diets. Others may tell patients that ‘diet makes no difference’, which can result in avoidable use of medication and procedures with inevitable side effects, and can even be dangerous as medication needs can change dramatically when dietary changes are made.

Even clinicians who are aware of the benefits of plant-based nutrition are not equipped with the tools to help their patients implement this way of eating an optimal way.

From webinars to mini-courses and in-person events, we aim to provide our audience with knowledge, tools, skills and connections to utilise whole food plant-based nutrition in the prevention and treatment of disease. Explore our education program below, designed specifically for clinicians and students, or check out our upcoming events.
