As dietitians, we can work with people in the prime of their lives. People raising families; or looking to maximise their sports performance. Sometimes though, we can be called upon when they’re facing their biggest challenge.

In our most recent podcast with Dr Lee-anne Chapple, we look at the latest evidence in critical care nutrition. We tackle the big questions: How do we interpret and translate the evidence into best practice care? Where is the research leading us? What about protein? What happens after the patient leaves the ICU?

Learn all about how dietitians are making a difference in critical care.

Around the world in science circles, there is a growing recognition that dietary guidance should be based on evaluation of the health impact of whole foods rather than on the individual nutrients they contain. In Australia, we have recently seen this reflected in the Heart Foundation’s new recommendations around meat, dairy and eggs. This podcast, hosted by Sharon Natoli, with guest speaker Prof Michelle McKinley is all about the 'food matrix effect' and how our approach to nutrition is changing.
