History

Sharing Clinical Nutrition Knowledge vertical is a vital action point in our road map to success. The Clinical Nutrition Update is an annual event, which addresses aspects of patient care at hospitals and also that of hospital-based nutritional intervention. There is ample evidence that a team approach to nutritional intervention in the hospitalized patient has a beneficial effect on patient outcome. Hence, in the Scientific Programme of the Updates, Doctors and Dietitians together as a team address medical and nutritional requirements of different clinical conditions. The event faculty includes distinguished National and International Physicians, Surgeons, Paediatricians, Intensivists, and Clinical Dietitians, who are well-known nationally or internationally for their contribution to Clinical Nutrition.

In an advancing medical landscape, Dietitians play a greater role than ever before and therefore it is critical that they continuously stay abreast of global trends and development in the field. The main objective of the updates was to have an impact on the knowledge base of the practicing Dietitians to meet the ever-increasing and changing demands on their expertise which is an important factor influencing their professional growth.
