The 2024 series focuses on five different dietary practices relevant to cardiometabolic disease presented from the perspective of physicians, scientists and registered dietitian. Each session will provide evidence-based support, and introduce practical counselling strategies to help participants feel more confident in incorporating nutrition counselling in their practice.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of the series, participants will be better able to:

  • Describe evidence-based dietary patterns in the management of cardiometabolic diseases.
  • Participants will be able to identify strategies to promote healthy eating behaviours using a patient centered approach. 
  • Identify tools and resources in clinical practice for improving the nutrition knowledge and guiding the dietary behavior of patients and their families.
