Introduction to Injectable Nutrients
Registered medical doctors and registered nurses
The AIMN one day workshop provides an introduction to injectable nutrients in a clinical setting.
Doctors trained in Medical Nutrition can investigate a person’s nutritional status and can then suggest nutrient therapies which could assist in achieving optimal health, preventing disease or fighting existing disease.
In some cases, the best form of delivery of nutrients is through intravenous or intramuscular injection. This may be because: large doses, if taken orally, may adversely affect the gut; the person may have problems with absorption; the best form of the nutrient may not be well tolerated if taken orally; or a rapid response is needed, which may not be achieved through oral supplementation.
To practice injectable nutrient therapy properly, a doctor must undertake additional study beyond that offered in any medical school in this country.
The Australasian Institute for Medical Nutrition offers an intense introduction to injectable nutrients workshop to doctors and their practice nurses.
The Workshop looks at:
- Fundamental overview of injectable nutrient clinical application.
- Assessment of evidence, case discussion, applications and protocols of nutritional medicine.
- Aseptic hands-on mixing, administration and receiving of nutritional infusions.
- Safety: precautions, infection control, the event of an emergency.
- Viral infections, chronic disease states, Fatigue, Diabetes, Inflammation, Toxicities and much more.
