Challenges in diet-related chronic disease management due to sleep problems: How do we help?

January 18, 2022 12:00 CST

Robin Tucker, PhD, RD, FAND presents a webinar titled “Challenges in diet-related chronic disease management due to sleep problems: How do we help?”. The presenter will discuss physiological changes triggered by insomnia that make management of chronic diseases, including diabetes (type 2), obesity, and cardiovascular disease a challenge. Screening tools for sleep problems will be presented for use by RD’s in clinical practice. Behavior change interventions will be discussed to promote better sleep outcomes in clients, providing a gateway for improved management of chronic diseases in those with sleep issues. 1 CPEU (level 2) is approved for this webinar and registration is free for DPG members. Register here.

Objectives

  1. Participants will be able to explain at least three physiological changes triggered by sleep problems make managing chronic diseases much more challenging.
  2. Participants will be able to explain at least two tools to screen patients for sleep problems.
  3. Participants will be able to summarize three behavior-based recommendations to improve sleep outcomes for their patients and clients.

What’s What! Probiotics, Postbiotics, Prebiotics, Synbiotics, and Fermented Foods

 *A collaboration between the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Research Dietetics Practice Group (RDPG), the Institute for the Advancement of Food and Nutrition Sciences (IAFNS), and the American Society for Nutrition (ASN), Nutritional Microbiology Research Interest Section (RIS)* 

December 9, 2021 11 – 12:30 pm ET

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is an accredited CPE provider with the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR). Pending CPE approval, CDR Credentialed Practitioners will receive 1.0 CPEU for completion either the live or recorded viewing of the webinar.

Probiotic-containing foods and supplements have been available for many decades, with consumption being driven by published studies of strain-specific health benefits. More recently, evidence for the health benefits of prebiotics, synbiotics, postbiotics and fermented foods has been growing. As the terms relevant to this space proliferate, so does confusion! Key to developing a strong evidence base for health benefits are clear definitions of these terms to support harmonized research approaches and the development of products that produce the intended benefit. This webinar will review definitions and the central attributes for probiotics, prebiotics, synbiotics, postbiotics and fermented foods leaning on the consensus publications developed by the International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics. Ample time will be allotted for participant questions and discussion. Participants in the webinar will be prepared to answer questions from patients and clients about these substances and the value of incorporating into the diet. Register here.
