Consuming a suboptimal diet is an important, preventable risk factor for various non-communicable diseases that are commonly encountered by physiotherapists in clinical practice. Because diet can have such a significant impact on patients’ ability to engage in rehabilitation and their overall outcomes, it is beneficial for rehabilitation practitioners to understand the relationship between nutrition and disease processes and when to refer to other practitioners when needed.


This course aims to introduce chronic diseases and other conditions that can be affected and / or managed by diet.


This course is made up of videos, reading, discussions and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:
