Here you will see a summary of the course.

This course aims to present the latest research and clinical practice guidelines to facilitate the delivery of The LOW FODMAP Diet to support the management of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). It is for dietitians who currently manage, or are keen to develop knowledge in managing, adults with IBS. The course is taught through self-directed learning, and an interactive workshop.

Aim

To develop the necessary dietetic knowledge and skill to be able to safely and effectively educate service users on the principles of the Low FODMAP Diet, to support the management of IBS symptoms.

Learning Outcomes

 By the end of this course, dietitians should be able to:

·        Explain what The Low FODMAP Diet is, and its role in supporting the management of IBS

·        Discuss circumstances where implementation of The Low FODMAP Diet is not appropriate

·        Implement an individualised restriction phase of the Low FODMAP Diet, using behaviour change skills, accounting for personal preferences and cultural diversity

·        Consider when it might be appropriate to use a ‘gentle FODMAP’ approach, rather than implement the full restriction phase.

·        Review and evaluate the effectiveness of an individual’s progress with the Low FODMAP Diet, using appropriate outcome measures

·        Implement the reintroduction and personalisation phase of the Low FODMAP Diet

·        Apply troubleshooting strategies for when the low FODMAP diet does not improve IBS symptoms
