Micronutrient Status Post Bariatric Surgery


Description
All of the currently popular bariatric surgical procedures can result in micronutrient deficiencies due to reduced nutrient intake and reduction in nutrient absorption. The extent of which and which micronutrients are involved will vary from one procedure to the next. Micronutrient deficiencies can result in serious and even permanent consequences. It is, therefore, critical that all clinicians who care for patients who have had bariatric surgery, be aware of the potential nutritional consequences of these procedures. Understanding the signs and symptoms of the potential deficiencies and how to diagnose and treat them when they occur will reduce the likelihood of serious long term or even permanent sequelae.

The speakers are both well-regarded and veteran clinicians with long track records of care of bariatric patients. Additionally, both have years of experience in clinical nutrition. The faculty will present a comprehensive overview of the issues pertaining to micronutrients as they relate to bariatric surgery and will open with an overview of the surgical procedures including potential complications especially nutritional. The signs and symptoms of micronutrient deficiencies will be presented utilizing the nutrition-focused physical exam. The recently published American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery guidelines for micronutrients will be reviewed, including the suggestions for proper surveillance and the methods for repletion.

Learning Objectives

  1. Recognize the currently popular bariatric surgical procedures and distinguish their physiologic differences, particularly from a nutritional status.
  2. Utilize the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery micronutrient guidelines for in the treatment of bariatric patients.
  3. Identify the signs and symptoms of micronutrient deficiencies.
  4. Implement processes for lifetime micronutrient surveillance and aggressive repletion of deficiencies.

Malnutrition Awareness Week 2019

Implementing Nutrition Screening: Lessons Learned in Facilitating Practice Change

This Malnutrition Awareness Week event is a combined effort between ASPEN and the Canadian Nutrition Society (CNS). Nutrition professionals recognize that team-based practice is needed to identify and address multifactorial malnutrition yet engaging the multidisciplinary team in nutrition care activities is limited. CNS via the Canadian Malnutrition Task Force has successfully implemented a broad-based nutrition screening, diagnosis, and treatment program and have engaged the multidisciplinary team in nutrition care. Similarly, the Systematized, Interdisciplinary Malnutrition Program for Implementation and Evaluation (SIMPLE) in Australia has modified nutrition care process roles by increasing delegation, skill sharing, and systems based interventions for inpatients screened 'at risk' of malnutrition. This has demonstrated more timely and efficient inpatient nutrition interventions, improved patient reported outcomes and experience measures, has supported dietitians to meet increased service demand associated with improved screening practices. These examples of how improvements in care process can be achieved will be of interest to webinar attendees. 

Learning Objectives
1. Describe lessons learned implementing and evaluation a nutrition screening program.
2. Outline how to facilitate practice change in the context of nutrition care and activities.
3. Apply nutrition screening and practice changes.

Nutrition Approaches to NAFLD and Cirrhosis - A State of the Art Update


Description
This webinar will feature a state of the art update on the role of dietary therapies and over-arching nutrition principles in the management of Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and cirrhosis. The unique challenges of Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) cirrhosis that include the presence of sarcopenic obesity, and its' impact on clinical outcomes will be detailed, and integrated into a broader discussion on the nutrition management in cirrhosis.


Learning Outcomes
1. Discuss an evidence based approach to the dietary management of NAFLD.
2. Discuss the emerging role of the microbiome in the context of NAFLD pathophysiology and, to understand mechanisms through which nutrition therapies may be beneficial.
3. Discuss unique nutrition concerns in the setting of NASH cirrhosis.
4. Discuss an approach to nutrition assessment and management in cirrhosis.

Unlocking the Cardiovascular Benefits of Tea


Session Description
Beverages are important for a number of reasons, including hydration, providing essential nutrients and bioactives, and meeting food group intake. It is time to move beyond the simple message of avoiding sugar sweetened beverages and provide guidance that focuses on obtaining as much of the daily fluid needs as possible from beverages, which contain a lower amount of calories and improved nutrient profile. Based on scientific evidence, we will propose a guidance system on beverage consumption. In addition, this webinar will also provide an evidence-based review of both population based and randomized control trials demonstrating the benefits of consuming bioactives, including flavonoids from tea and impact on heart health, stroke, vascular function and blood pressure.

Overview
In this webinar, Dr. Dobust will first provide an overview of the contribution of various beverages to both positive food groups and nutrients to encourage, as well as to nutrients to limit (saturdated fat, sugars, and sodium). She will outline the principles and a model framework for beverage guidance, which can be a tool to help consumers understand how the right balance of beverages can help maintain hydration, potentially meet nutrient needs, and obtain functional bioactives. The framework will also address how beverage choice can be used to control intake of nutrients to limit such as sugars, saturated fat and sodium. 

Dr. Wallace will then discuss how unsweetened tea can be considered a healthful beverage option. Tea leaves contain high amounts of polyphenols (about 30% by dry weight), mainly in the flavonoid family. The major class of flavonoids in tea are flavan-3-ols, such as catechin, epicatechin, epigallocatechin (EGC), epicatechin gallate (ECG), and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). These flavan-3-ols have been consistently shown to elicit cardioprotective effects in clinical, observational and mechanistic studies. There is increasing evidence that illustrate a protective effect of tea consumption against cardiovascular diseases, due to its high concentrations of certain flavan-3-ols and other polyphenols. Results from two recent systematic reviews of randomized controlled trials and prospective cohort studies support the robustness of these associations. This webinar will review the most current evidence on tea consumption and why it should be recommended as a healthful beverage of choice.

Learning Outcomes
At the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:
1. Describe the current research on flavonoid consumption from tea on heart health, stroke, vascular function and blood pressure.
2. Discuss with clients and consumers the dose of tea needed to exert cardioprotective effects.
3. Propose a beverage guidance system that provides recommendations on the relative health and nutritional benefits and risks of various beverage categories.
