Nutritional Assessment & Counseling

Instructor: Dr. Adiel Tel-Oren
This basic course in nutrition succinctly reviews all the known macronutrients (carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, etc.), micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, etc.) and their clinical/nutritional significance. A short summary of basic clinical assessment protocols is provided (history and examination, physical and laboratory tests, and diet analysis) to enhance the nutritional consultant’s knowledge and ability to interact with other healthcare providers. Brief clinical protocols for all major conditions and situations (including gynecologic, obstetrics, geriatric, and infant nutrition) are listed, including clinical definitions, causative/contributory factors, protective factors, assessments, and therapy for each condition. Finally, a concise summary of nutrient biochemistry and physiology is provided for student reference.
