Learning objectives
The course aims to:
- Identify clinical aspect of metabolic disease and describe their physiopathology
- Find clinical problems in patients with polymorbidity
- Know interactions between pathology and the possible nutritional consequences, to find the nutritional corrective actions
- Know physiopathology and describe the dietetic-behavior action specific for patient and for the possible disease, if they need to
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the course students will know bases of main metabolic, cardiovascular, renal and gastrointestinal disease, to understand and elaborate the correct dietetic treatment.
