4th February 2021

With 15% of all GP appointments being related to the gut, an understanding of today’s digestive health patient journey is imperative.

It is crucial that we understand patient diagnosis, treatment and challenges faced at each stage of the patient journey from the clinician’s perspective.

In order to provide a comprehensive overview of this referral journey, on February 4th, Bimuno and The Functional Gut Clinic are co-hosting an educational event, ‘Digestive Health & Wellbeing: The Patient Journey’.

The event pulls together the stages of the patient referral process to highlight how clinicians can work together to prevent and treat gastrointestinal issues from the perspectives of clinicians and researchers. Morning sessions feature areas including dietetic, primary, secondary and tertiary care. Afternoon sessions build on this with a focus on the gut microbiome, its relationship to physical health, including immune function, athletic health and performance and the role of prebiotics and probiotics.

Delegates will develop a well-rounded picture of how gastrointestinal issues are understood and treated in today’s health landscape, as well as how gut health science may develop in the future.

The online event features a diverse panel of speakers to help healthcare professionals build a stronger understanding of how a focus on improving gut health can impact today’s health landscape.

Delegates can gain CPD points from the event, endorsed by:

British Dietetic Association
