From the Obesity crisis and its related epidemic of disease to enabling care in a community setting for citizens living with cancer and various chronic diseases, Nutrition is a critical and key component.
Effective and integrated policy, properly applied, has the ability to impact population health in a dramatically positive fashion. Health Literacy in this area, efficient and regular screening programmes and other cost-effective measures can greatly reduce the pressure upon clinical systems and budgets and enable citizens managing disease to successfully live in the home or community care setting.
This session will examine the impact of nutrition upon the citizen, care systems and care budgets. National advances in policy development and application will be shared along with the impacts of practical application.
Delegates will be able to examine those developments in the context of their own nation, debate the lessons and results and discuss what impacts such advances could have upon population health and care budgets at home.
