Understanding the Basics of Dietary Supplements for Promoting Patient Health
The dietary supplement industry is an ever-expanding and evolving market. Some estimates state that there are over 80,000 unique products available in the U.S. marketplace alone. This can make it challenging for healthcare providers to stay informed about new product research and development or even know where to begin when recommending dietary supplements for their patients.
In this webinar, Dr. Christopher Knee, ND, MSc, will provide a comprehensive introduction to dietary supplements, including:
- Dietary supplement regulation in the United States and Canada
- Key supplement categories, ingredients, and their clinical applications
- Considerations for selecting safe and effective supplements
- How to develop an integrative treatment protocol with evidence-based ingredients
Additionally, webinar registrants will receive complementary resources to support making supplement recommendations in clinical practice.
