Use critical thinking skills and clinical judgement with this case based self-study course on MNT and diabetes management!

This continuing professional education (CPE) self-study course provides a refresher on certain aspects of type 2 diabetes. It discusses the origins of the disease and how the body processes macronutrients. The book provides a rigorous diet/lifestyle treatment that, according to the author, may reverse type 2 diabetes in some people. The author’s premise provides an evidence-based but controversial perspective on treatment and lifetime management of the disease in the United Kingdom that may not be an accepted component to current standards of medical care for diabetes here in the U.S. The author believes that traditional medical nutrition therapy (MNT) is not always effective in controlling type 2 diabetes and presents a possible alternative.

This CPE will provide the learner with an understanding of one nutrition intervention that is more popular in the UK and may work to possibly reverse type 2 diabetes for some motivated clients. It will update the clinician on the contents of a popular book that outlines a way that may reverse diabetes that clients or health care professionals might want to implement. It will challenge health care professionals to keep up to date on what their clients may be reading, and to use critical thinking skills and clinical judgement to accept or reject the author’s sometimes controversial statements and perspective on MNT and diabetes management.

A case-study based CPE exam will assist the learner in applying the material to their work setting.

Purchasing Options: Course includes hard copy book, course document, electronic test, and 1 certificate with passing grade. If you already have the book, use the “additional certificate” option.

This self-study course and required reading provides an alternative diabetes management approach used in the United Kingdom for those wanting to understand how other countries are addressing the problem of diabetes.
