Reimagining diabetes care: Introducing a new consensus statement

Date & Time
Wed 24 Jul 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm AEST
About the webinar:

Join Accredited Practising Dietitians, Dr Shannon Lin and Samantha Stuk, in this webinar as they share updates on a newly developed consensus statement: The Use of Diabetes Specific Nutritional Formulas (DSNFs) in Type 2 Diabetes. The consensus statement was developed by an expert working group of representatives from the Australian Diabetes Society (ADS), Australian Diabetes Educators Association (ADEA), Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) and Dietitians Australia. Gain insights into how DSNFs can offer a practical, clinically proven approach to support improved metabolic outcomes and bridge nutritional gaps. Through real-world case studies, Shannon and Samantha will show how DSNFs can benefit diverse client profiles, from those struggling with high post-prandial blood glucose excursions or a healthy diet to those requiring oral nutrition supplements.
