Type 2 diabetes is routinely managed in primary care settings. Despite this, medical training on safe, effective dietary interventions is often outdated or suboptimal, with reports suggesting that physicians and nurses lack the necessary confidence and expertise to deliver dietary advice that can affect outcomes.
In this video series, Advisory Board members Pam Dyson (Research Dietitian) and Liz Morris (General Practitioner) address the most pressing questions for primary healthcare professionals, drawing from the latest evidence and recommendations on diet and nutrition for people with type 2 diabetes.
