The Centre for Advanced Learning (CAL) is excited to bring you the Biochemistry Foundations for Dietitians Evergreen course - Module 1: Fundamental concepts of human biochemistry.
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.
- Describe the process of digestion and absorption of the principal nutrients from food
- Explain the fate of energy-yielding nutrients in energy metabolism
- Discuss energy balance, including feasting and fasting, and the impact of alcohol on metabolism
- Explain the role of biochemical tests in nutrition assessment
This module is the first module in the Biochemistry Foundations for Dietitians Evergreen course. 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.
Access to the course: new registrants will be automatically uploaded to the Learning Management System (LMS). Instructions for accessing the course will be included in the order confirmation email. Registrants will have access to the course for 12 months from their enrolment date.
