Neuroinflammatory Conditions

Inflammation is implicated in the pathogenesis of a number of conditions that affect the central nervous system. You will learn about how certain endogenous molecules impact on the central nervous system and how these inflammatory complexes contribute to brain tissue injury and neurodegenerative disease.
This training event aims to provide insight into the role of nutritional and environmental medicine and its influence on the underlying physiological issues that contribute to neurodegeneration. Conditions such as Alzheimer's Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease and depression will be presented by industry experts. Come and hear the growing scientific evidence behind the treatment options, pathology testing, dietary interventions and environmental remediation techniques. Learn how to better manage these conditions and improve quality of life for patients.

The learning outcomes for this module are:

  1. Describe the impact of inflammation on the the central nervous system
  2. Explain the detrimental influence of the built environment on the central nervous sytem
  3. Identify the role of diet and lifestyle in the management of chronic inflammatory conditions
  4. Identify the role of diet and lifestyle in the prevention of neurodegenerative conditions
  5. Communicate the importance of early intervention for neurological health
  6. Formulate a systems-based approach to making dietary and lifestyle recommendations for patients deemed at risk of developing neurodegenerative disease
