This MSc in Applied Clinical Nutrition is intended for frontline health professionals who provide advice to the public about nutrition-related aspects of health and disease. It has been developed to meet the growing need for community and acute care professionals to have a fundamental knowledge of nutrition, as they become increasingly tasked with the responsibility to provide nutritional support and advice. You will acquire an in-depth knowledge of the relationship between diet and disease, from the molecular to the population level, and discover the nutrients required throughout each stage of the life cycle to maintain optimal health status. You will also develop a clear understanding of the factors that determine behaviour change in relation to nutrition and health. If you are a health professional that would like to advance your knowledge of the role nutrition plays in managing health to a high level, this course will equip you with the necessary nutritional expertise to work alongside nutrition-based health professionals to make important contributions to the nutritional wellbeing of patients.
