Diversity in Dietetics. Presented by 5 APD’s from very different cultural backgrounds

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Diversity in Dietetics is a presentation by five APD’s from five very different cultural backgrounds, all living and working in Australia.

Noell Burgess is Aboriginal Australian and describes her traditional diet; an abundance of seafood, berries and fruits.

Dung Pham was born in Australia, but her parents fled Vietnam 34 years ago by boat. Dung describes the communal nature of Vietnamese meals and their three components: salty, stir-fry and vegetable broth.

Farah Wilson’s background is Lebanese. She explains a typical Middle Eastern style eating pattern. She encourages us to ask about the use of specific foods in our Middle Eastern clients.

Purva Gulyani was born and raised in India. She explains how the Indian diet varies significantly depending on the region. Despite this there are commonalities; 70% of the worlds vegetarians are Indian. Rice and vegetables feature heavily.

Kirstine Kira, of Maori heritage shows us how to incorporate nutrition education in a culturally meaningful way to our clients.

The Low FODMAP Diet in Practice Joanna Baker, APD, AN, RN

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Until about 10 years ago, dietitians were unsure of what dietary advice to give people with IBS.   Dr Sue Shepherd, a GI specialist dietitian went on to complete a PhD at Monash University that resulted in the low FODMAP diet.  Today, this diet is internationally recognised as an effective strategy for 80% of people suffering from IBS. 

Joanna is a long time IBS sufferer and an authority on the FODMAP diet.  This webinar looks at all the FODMAP Fundamentals: 

-What is IBS, diagnosis, symptoms both physical and emotional

-What are FODMAPS

-History and development of the low FODMAP diet

-Evidence for the low FODMAP diet – why and how it works!

-Who can benefit from the low FODMAP diet (this may surprise you)

-Client assessment (medical history, diagnostic tests, symptom assessment, social assessment, diet history etc.)

-Implementing the low FODMAP diet and tailoring it to an individual’s needs

-A Case Study

Joanna runs her own practice, Everyday Nutrition, is the FODMAP consultant dietitian at FODMAP Friendly, and author of The FODMAP Friendly Elimination and Challenge handbooks.   She works one on one with clients, consults with manufacturers and lectures internationally to both health care providers and the general public on the low FODMAP diet.

The anti-inflammatory diet for inflammatory bowel disease. Barbara Olendzki MPH, RD, LDN

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Until recently, diet was overlooked in the treatment of IBD. However, in the hands of the right professional, diet can be highly effective as a treatment for IBD. 

Barbara is an Associate Professor of Medicine, University of Massachusetts Medical School and Nutrition Program Director, Centre for Applied Nutrition (Umass)

Barbara is delighted to present to us her research and clinical work on the microbiome and diet, which has led to the development of the inflammatory bowel disease and anti-inflammatory diet. Barbara shows us:

How diet, environment and genetics can affect the microbiome. 
That IBD is highly responsive to diet. 
How to utilise diet to balance microbiota and improve IBD
The 4 components of IBD-AID – probiotics, prebiotics, beneficial nutrients, avoidance of adverse foods (important not to just focus on this last one, as many clients with IBD tend to do)
How to use IBD-AID for benefitting IBS, IBD, food allergy, immunity, weight and more.
The role of fermented foods, supplements and digestive enzymes
Research on faecal transplants

 

As dietitians, we are shown how to customise a diet unique to the IBD client’s needs and shown what’s next in the future of diet-microbiome research.

Teaching the Gluten Free Diet - Part 2: Gluten Free practical details. Sally Marchini APD

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sally Marchini has both Type 1 diabetes and coeliac disease, so she has extensive experience both professionally and personally with these diseases.  In part 1, Sally presented to us the essential information we need to well inform our coeliac clients.

In this webinar, Sally clearly explains the specific details which will give you as a dietitian even greater understanding and confidence in managing your coeliac clients.  She summarises the first webinar and discusses the following:

Testing of Family members
Expected recovery times on a GF diet
How we should monitor the health of a coeliac over time and what diagnostic tests should be considered
Treating deficiencies with food and/or supplements
How to include fibre in a GF diet
What to do about ongoing symptoms and screening for associated conditions
Travelling with coeliac disease
Cooking gluten free on a budget
Converting recipes
Eating out

She also provides helpful websites with endless tips and resources.

Teaching the gluten free diet is more involved than what we were taught in clinical dietetics at university.  Coeliacs have this condition for life, and the greater amount of understanding and support you can provide, the easier their lives will be.

Sally Marchini runs Marchini Nutrition and Be Well Gluten Free, a closed Facebook group which provides information for those needing a gluten free diet.

Teaching the Gluten Free Diet - Part 1: Gluten Free diet essentials. Sally Marchini APD

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sally is an APD with both Type 1 Diabetes and Coeliac Disease, so she brings a wealth of personal and professional experience to this topic. Many dietitians have little practical knowledge of the gluten free diet and so are ill equipped to deal with coeliac clients.  It is important as dietitians that we not only understand the detail of living the GF diet but also the frustration it involves.

This webinar will provide you with all the information you need to provide the best service to your clients.  Sally clearly explains what preparation is needed before the first appointment to give your client the best possible advice, such as:

Following a gluten free diet yourself
Knowing the names of gluten containing grains
Client assessment
How to clearly explain coeliac disease and the GF diet
How to decipher food labels
How to avoid contamination
How to structure a diet for a client to go home with
Where to find support

In short, how to empower a client to successfully live as a coeliac and improve dietitian experiences for those newly diagnosed with the condition. 

Sally Marchini runs Marchini Nutrition and runs a closed Facebook group called Be Well Gluten Free, which provides information for those needing a gluten free diet.

Water, hydration and fluid. Presented by Pauline Douglas, UK dietitian

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is water the Forgotten Nutrient?  Pauline Douglas has over 30 years of clinical and academic experience in dietetics and she chairs the European Healthy Hydration awareness campaign.  This webinar shows the importance of hydration in relation to health and gives guidelines as to how much fluid we need for good health.  Pauline presents clear evidence of the links between lack of hydration and consumption of sugar-sweetened drinks, with specific diseases such as obesity and Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and renal function and disease.

Discover how Copeptin, a precursor of AVP (Arginine Vasopressin) can be used as a stable co-marker for AVP, and see how increased levels are linked to health issues in “low” drinkers and those clients presenting with oedema.

Pauline gives practical advice on what questions to ask clients, as well as ideas on how to make water more palatable and how to address client concerns around drinking more water.  Always consider hydration in our practise!

 

Pauline Douglas is a registered dietitian, senior lecturer and clinical dietetics facilitator at the University of Ulster.  She is also vice-chair and education director of MEdPro, an interdisciplinary global centre for nutrition and health, and is co-author of “Dietetics and Nutrition Case Studies,” a book dedicated to problem based learning.

Sleep and circadian rhythms. Presented by Dr Sarah Jay, PhD

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sleep is as essential to our survival as air, water and food.  Poor sleep can contribute to a multitude of health issues.  Dr Sarah Jay PhD is a senior post-doctoral research fellow at the Appleton Institute at CQ University.  Her particular interest is in the role of sleep.

As dietitians, we see many clients who don’t get enough sleep.  Sarah shows us the latest research into the effects of sleep loss and circadian disruption, which can lead to weight gain, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, mental health issues, and a general negative impact on all facets of our lives.  She describes how sleep restriction impairs glucose tolerance and how appetite is increased by a combination of reduced leptin and increased ghrelin after just four nights of restricted sleep, which leads to increased snacking on sweet foods.  We are given tips and recommendations on how to advise our clients on how much sleep they should have for optimal health, how to make best use of their sleep opportunities (sleep hygiene) and how to manage eating and sleeping around shift work in a world that runs 24/7.

Sarah Jay completed her PhD in 2007 and over the past 10 years has worked in both New Zealand and Australia conducting research that is broadly focussed on the impact of working hours on safety and health.

Making and using fermented foods. Presented by Sharon Flynn

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A healthy gut microbiome has a huge diversity of bacteria. But how do we increase the diversity of bacteria in our gut? The answer lies with eating small amounts of different fermented foods each day. And as Sharon explained in her webinar, fermented foods are simple to prepare and taste delicious.

“Those pickles you buy from the shop aren’t fermented. They are preserved and they are tasty, which is great. But they are pretty much devoid of life because they are preserved in vinegar, and heated to kill any life that may make them dangerous. Buy those, and make those, but don’t pretend they are the same as wild brine ferment. They aren’t. And the flavour is very different.” From Ferment For Good by Sharon Flynn by Hardie Grant Books.

Sharon explains what fermentation is, discusses health benefits and different types of starter cultures, and shows how easy it is to make delicious fermented foods at home.  You will become familiar with scobies, kombucha, kefir, tempeh, labne and sauerkraut, just to name a few.

About the presenter:

Sharon Flynn has been learning, experimenting and honing her knowledge about fermented foods for several decades.

She has started The Fermentary (in Daylesford, Victoria) where she produces slow fermented vegetables and kefirs as well as running workshops teaching people how to make their own. Sharon is the author of “Ferment for Good: ancient food for the modern gut,” a guide to discovering the joys of fermentation. May 2017 Hardie Grant Books.

The brain-gut axis. Presented by Dr Simon Knowles BA (Hons) MPsyc (Clinical), PhD, MAPS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dr Simon Knowles is a Registered Clinical Psychologist and Senior Lecturer at Swinburne University.  His fascinating presentation explains to us what the brain-gut axis is and how it works, and identifies the links between psychological issues and chronic gastro-intestinal disorders such as IBS and IBD.  

Psychological issues and chronic GI conditions go hand in hand.  75% of people with IBS have a psychological disorder, such as stress, anxiety or depression.  It is important for us as dietitians that when we see clients with chronic GI conditions, as well as looking for dietary triggers we must also identify and address the psychological component of their illness.  Simon guides us as to when psychological interventions should be considered and what are appropriate psychological interventions for each client.

About the presenter; Dr Simon Knowles BA (Hons) MPsyc (Clinical), PhD, MAPS.  His clinical specialty is with people who have chronic gastro-intestinal illnesses.  He has three websites which provide free online psychological services for people with gut disorders.

Food Regulation. Presented by Louise Fisher, APD, BCom/LLB

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As a dietitian, have you ever looked at a food product and wondered what laws govern the information on the package?  Louise Fisher provides us with a really clear understanding of food and nutrition regulation by explaining the three principles of food law;

1. Food Safety.

2. Competition and Consumer Protection.

3. Nutrition and Health claims.

She deciphers the information on food labels and explains how manufacturers gain compliance with the Food Standards Code (what’s compulsory information) and Australian Consumer Law (what they legally can or cannot claim).

Louise also discusses the ACCCs role and cites some fascinating court cases.

Most importantly, she outlines what this all means for the future of Food Regulation in Australia and how to use these laws to advocate for better nutrition and empower you as a dietician to help your clients make better food choices.

About the author – Louise Fisher is an APD and the founder of Food 360, an organisation which provides regulatory advice to companies in the complex area of food labelling.

Binge eating disorder. Presented by Dr Kiera Buchanan, Clinical and Health Psychologist

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Binge eating disorder is a mental health disorder with diagnostic criteria outlined in the latest Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

Kiera advises that anyone presenting to you for weight loss or has concerns about their eating or their weight/shape should be screened for an eating disorder. Only one third of clients with eating disorders are asked about their eating behaviours/cognitions from their health professional.

The goals of treatment for binge eating disorder are:

Abstinence from binge eating
Reduce the over evaluation of shape and weight
Weight stabilisation and/or modest weight loss

Recovery from binge eating disorder is possible. Using CBT there is complete remission in around 50% of all clients. In her presentation Kiera outlined the practical strategies to use in CBT.

About the presenter:

Dr Kiera Buchanan is registered as both a Clinical and Health Psychologist and is the founding director of the Brisbane-based Centre for Integrative Health. Her research has focused on eating behavior, weight management and body image. She has acquired an expertise in helping clients achieve long-term solutions to their weight- and eating-issues through application of her research and experience. Dr Buchanan’s approach acknowledges the important relationship between diet, lifestyle, and psychological factors in achieving eating and weight-management outcomes.

Intermittent fasting. Presented by Dr Michelle Harvie, PhD, Research Dietitian, UK

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dr Michelle Harvie is a research dietitian from the Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention Centre, University Hospital of South Manchester. Her research and passion involve the investigation of optimal diet and exercise strategies to prevent breast cancer and its recurrence.

Harvie’s group in Manchester conducted one of the first human studies into intermittent fasting (IF) in 2012.

Several years on, Michelle continues her research into IF. She recently published a review of the potential benefits and harms of intermittent energy restriction. For us, she has presented clearly the details about what is known regarding these very popular diets. To date in published research only 117 people have been studied using intermittent fasting diets. Incredibly, there are over 1000 diet books expounding the benefits of intermittent fasting.

The situation so far is that intermittent energy restriction, when compared to continuous energy restriction, has equal results with regards to weight loss, hepatic fat, insulin sensitivity and resting energy expenditure. We don’t know the long-term effects of IF. It does not appear to be a fad and it does seem that some people are managing to use IF to manage their weight. 

 

About the presenter:

Dr Michelle Harvie is a research dietitian from the Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention Centre, University Hospital of South Manchester. She qualified as a dietitian in 1991. Her current research covers optimum diet and exercise strategies to prevent breast cancer and its recurrence. She has written more than 40 peer-reviewed publications and was awarded the British Dietetic Association Rose Simmonds Award 2005 for her paper on weight gain among breast cancer patients receiving adjuvant chemotherapy. She received the National Association for the Study of Obesity National Best Practice Award in 2010 for her work on intermittent energy restricted diets. She is principal investigator for the B-AHEAD-2 trial and B-AHEAD 3 trials testing intermittent diets among early and advanced breast cancer patients receiving chemotherapy. Dr Harvie has published three self-help guides to the intermittent diet:  The 2 Day Diet (Ebury, Feb 2013); The 2 Day Diet Cookbook (Ebury, April 2013) and The 2 Day Diet: The Quick And Easy Edition (Ebury, Feb 2014). All author proceeds go to the Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention charity

Nutrition and Ramadan. Presented by Lina Breik, APD

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Islamic month of Ramadan, which varies from year to year, is a time during which many Muslim people abstain from eating, drinking and smoking from dawn to sunset. Fasting becomes an important act of faith for Muslim people all over the world in order to practice important life skills, including discipline, self-restraint and empathy.

Using the most current research and her personal experience, Lina explains Ramadan so we have a greater cultural awareness and can support our Muslim clients with suitable nutrition information.

This year Ramadan begins on Friday May 26th. Now is the perfect time to be asking your Muslim clients about their plans for Ramadan. Lina suggests that people with chronic illnesses and those with diabetes would benefit from a visit to their GP 1-2 months prior to the commencement of Ramadan to discuss how they will manage their fasting.

About the presenter:

Lina is a Palestinian-Australian Accredited Practicing Dietitian from Melbourne. While her clinical speciality is critical care nutrition, she thoroughly enjoys raising awareness around the importance of nutrition during religious festivities. As a Muslim clinician, Lina aims to help colleagues understand the Middle Eastern culture and Islamic religion better; and feel confident in connecting and empathising with their patients.

Bariatric surgery part 1: Understanding the basics. Presented by Merril Bohn, APD

 

 

 

 

 

Obesity is a complex condition and statistically most treatment plans are generally ineffective.

In her first webinar Merril gave an update on the procedures available in Australia and which are currently being done.

Merril presented the best practice recommendations for diet pre and post operatively and eating strategies for long term success.

She also explained why surgery is not a miracle cure for obesity. People who have had bariatric surgery require long-term lifestyle changes. Changes which dietitians are well positioned to educate and support them with.
