The Centre for Advanced Learning (CAL) is excited to bring you the Biochemistry Foundations for Dietitians Evergreen course.
Audience: this course is designed for dietitians with 1 – 3 years’ experience in practice. This course can also be used as a refresher if you are returning to practice within this area.
- Explain what happens to the principal nutrients in food once consumed
- Describe the main pathways involved in energy metabolism and the shift in metabolism observed with feasting and fasting
- Discuss the role of biochemical tests in nutrition assessment and be able to recognise common diagnostic tests used in Australia
- Explain the impact of various dietary patterns on biochemical and metabolic parameters
- Use biochemical tests (along with other relevant information), to inform and provide evidence-based and practical nutrition and education advice
Over 1 module and 3 toolkits, the course provides information, resources, recommended reading and case studies to enhance your active learning experience.
Module 1 is called 'Fundamental concepts of human biochemistry'. The aim of this module is to extend knowledge of foundational human biochemistry and increase confidence in understanding the biochemical pathways that the energy-yielding nutrients follow once these have been broken down into their digestion products and absorbed, the shift in metabolism that occurs when we eat too much or too little of one or more of these energy-yielding macronutrients, and the impact of alcohol on energy metabolism.
Toolkit 1 is called 'Understanding and interpreting biochemical test results'. The aim of this toolkit is to extend skills and knowledge in understanding and interpreting biochemical/pathology test findings in a nutritional context.
Toolkit 2 is called 'Dietary patterns and impact on biochemical parameters (part 1)'. The aim of this toolkit is to consider the impact of dietary patterns on biochemical indices and how these link to diet-related non-communicable disease, and to extend confidence in interpreting biochemical test results together with other available information into practical, nutrition advice.
Toolkit 3 is called 'Dietary patterns and impact on biochemical parameters (part 2)'. The aim of this toolkit is to extend on Toolkit 2, and to consider the impact of dietary patterns on biochemical indices and how these link to diet-related non-communicable disease, and to extend confidence in interpreting biochemical test results together with other available information into practical, nutrition advice.
