This online course aims to consolidate and advance dietetic practice in the management of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), including the use of the Low FODMAP Diet. This includes a comprehensive review of the evidence and international guidelines for first line dietary management and the low FODMAP diet (in IBS and other conditions) and interventions beyond diet. Dietitians will be taught how to use a step-wise approach to the dietetic management of IBS and gain the practical ‘know how’ of the low FODMAP diet. Detailed guidance on using the low FODMAP diet with patients will be covered. The course lecturers have been trained by King’s College, London and the course will provide a strong evidence based foundation in managing IBS patients.
The online course consists of 3 modules and participants will need to complete each module and associated coursework before commencing the next module. Coursework includes case studies, journal articles and practical exercises. The course content is equivalent to a 2 day course but you will have 6 weeks (2 weeks per module) to complete the course. The course will provide 30 CEU points (1 ethics).
Included in the course cost is 1 year free membership to the EatFit Network allowing them to run the EatFit for IBS Programme in their practice using the EatFit resources (worth R1500 a year).
