G3: Gluten, Gut, and Genomics-Nutritional Considerations for Optimized Health Outcomes
This course provides a research-based approach for clinicians to educate the clinician gluten’s potential role in digestive health issues. The course reviews current and recent literature to provide the clinician with an understanding of the potential pros and cons of a gluten-free diet. Gluten-free diets may be warranted in cases where true sensitivities are present, however gluten free eating may pose significant down-sides.
The genomics-nutritional part provides a research-based approach for clinicians to educate the clinician on genomic and nutrigenomics testing. This course reviews current and recent literature to provide the clinician with an understanding of the potential pros and cons of applied genomic testing. Genomic and nutrigenomics testing is a nuevo area of medicine that is practiced across multiple modalities. Genomic testing companies are flooding the market with applications for various health care providers, as well as applications designed directly for the patient-consumer.
The learner’s time spent studying and participating in the course is tracked electronically. A formal multiple-choice examination is administered at the termination of the course materials. There will be at least three questions for every hour of the class. The learner must receive a score of 75% of the total possible points and log at least three hours to receive credit for the course. Learners not achieving the pass rate will be directed to additional study by the instructor and allowed to re-take the examination.
