Learning Aim:

By the end of this course delegates will have an understanding of ketogenic dietary therapies, how and when ketogenic therapies should be used, how they can be safely implemented and monitored in their patients.

Delegates will also have an understanding of how different ketogenic therapies are used in different patient groups.

Delegates will be given all course materials to utilise in their own ketogenic clinics.

Delegates will have access to the confidential KetoCollege Forum where ongoing mentoring and advice will be available to them whilst in their own clinical setting. Details of this will be sent to them once the course has been completed.
