2019 - Dr Angela Madden presented 'Challenging dietetics: be curious, be critical and be kind'
What we heard
The one hour talk examined areas of dietetics where practice has changed direction and where once standard approaches have been challenged by emerging evidence and subsequently revised.
Inspired by Professor Elsie Widdowson’s major contribution to generating and applying scientific evidence, the lecture drew on Angela’s clinical and research expertise using examples from gastroenterology and hepatology, and consider how evidence has changed past and current practice and how dietitians initiate, engage in and lead these developments.
Looking to the future, Angela considered other potential areas of practice aiming to stimulate dietitians to continually be curious and critical about their practice and, where evidence indicates, to challenge the status quo.
2018 - Professor Kevin Whelan presented modifying the microbiome in gut health and disease: research as the foundation of dietetic practice
What we heard
This one-hour talk discussed the gastrointestinal microbiome, a complex ecosystem of trillions of bacteria, how our understanding of its role in health and disease is rapidly expanding as a results of molecular microbiological techniques that can accurately characterise its composition and diversity and 'omics' technologies that measure its metabolic activity.
Professor Whelan provided an insight into the ongoing research being under taken in the field, including studies and controlled trials of microbiome-modifying interventions and a wide range of disorders - plus the results which are often surprising!
