INMD 600: NUTRITION & DIET

1

COURSE SUMMARY:

Nutrition is a fast evolving science and practitioners are flooded with a lot of conflicting and unfounded nutrition information provided in the media, by nutritional supplement companies and even from poor designed published studies. Nutritionists themselves promote a wide variety of nutritional theories and clinical approaches, yet often conflicting. Many nutritional courses that are included in medical degree curriculums provide general but minimal theoretical information. They often offer insufficient applicable components for solving clinical problems integratively. At the same time, curriculums of standard nutrition degrees lack up to date information about the clinical applications of nutritional supplements and special diets. Their typical emphasis is on the “food pyramid” and a limited, very conservative set of nutritional interventions for hospital based nutrition.

This module is based on up to date scientific knowledge from the fields of biochemistry, human physiology, testing objective nutritional biomarkers, as well as food and nutritional supplements chemistry and toxicology. This module is designed to support practitioners in their ability is to utilize the most effective and safe nutrition interventions for disease prevention or reversal, while optimizing the patient’s vitality and performance. The information is structured to provide a well organized core of clinical nutrition solutions, a foundation that is easy to build on with updated information.

COURSE LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • To analyze and apply guidelines for nutritional status assessment through blood, urine, and diet analysis.

  • To analyze and apply RDA guidelines versus optimal and therapeutic levels of nutrients. (Focus on nutritional supplements properties: dose adequacy, variety of forms, manufacturing guarantees of potencies and avoiding toxic contaminants.)

  • To analyze and apply guidelines to utilizing useful nutritional medicine resources current with updated

    research

DISCLAIMER

The delivery of integrative, holistic, or alternative medicine (sometimes referred to as "Complimentary Alternative Medicine or "CAM") may unintentionally include the delivery of services covered by health care plans (notably, by Medicare due to the age or condition of patients triggering coverage). Since CAM practices are largely cash or private fee practices, practitioners must cautiously and carefully ensure that their services do not collect patient payments for what Medicare covers. With the Accountable Care Act being implemented on a national level, more preventative health care services are now covered by Medicare. Coverage of certain preventative care services is now enhanced or expanded. Care must be taken, therefore, since some CAM services delivered by practitioners may constitute preventative medical services mandated as covered by Medicare with no co-pay or deductible owed. HMO plans prohibit the delivery of medical services covered by the plan for patient compensation in excess of plan reimbursement, and require advance patient consent for voluntary non-medical amenities triggering additional patient payment obligations. Additionally, HIPAA/HITECH implements important patient privacy protections and may be triggered by the storage or handling of any electronic patient information. Federal law mandates patients have access to electronic health records, therefore, care must be taken to avoid charging fees for electronic health records access that is mandated by federal law, or for charges in excess of federal guidelines. Various states often have privacy and medical records access laws similar to federal laws. CAM practices often, but not always, engage in electronic communication with patients and involve family members or significant others with CAM consultations, so care must be taken regarding HIPAA/HITECH compliance with respect to privacy and records access. HIPAA/HITECH requires separate personal health information (PHI) written consent by patients, along with updated notices of privacy practices (NPPs) toward HIPAA/HITECH compliance. Due to the complexities of reimbursement and privacy laws, CAM practitioners are strongly advised to seek competent legal counsel to achieve compliance, and should not rely on IFIM presentations. Materials and information presented by IFIM are necessarily general, non-specific, and do not constitute or replace legal advice. The IFIM specifically disclaims that it is providing legal compliance guidelines, representations, warranties or assurances.
