The Clinical Nutrition Descriptor
Clinical Nutrition is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. Clinical Nutrition practitioners use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual's symptoms and health concerns. This approach allows them to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining health. Clinical Nutrition is recognised as a complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and wellbeing.
Practitioners consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalized nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a 'one size fits all' approach. Practitioners never recommend Clinical Nutrition as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with 'red flag' signs or symptoms to their medical professional. They will also frequently work alongside a medical professional and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in the client's care to explain any Clinical Nutrition programme that has been provided.
Clinical nutritionists use a holistic approach to healing, taking into consideration the whole person, mind, body and soul. This approach is evidence-informed, meaning research findings and traditional medicine knowledge are combined to inform treatments plans.
Clinical nutritionists recognize that disease is complex and is caused by a combination of factors. As a result, clients are given individualized care in response to their health.
Clinical nutritionists mostly work in primary and secondary healthcare. Primary care is a clients’ first point of contact with the health system, often at the preventative or early stages of health-related issues. Secondary care is generally for acute health-related issues requiring intervention.
The Clinical Nutritionist requests that the Client notes the following:-
The degree of benefit obtainable from Clinical Nutrition may vary between clients with similar health problems and following a similar Clinical Nutrition programme. Nutritional advice will be tailored to support health conditions and/or health concerns identified and agreed between both parties.
Clinical Nutritionists are not permitted to diagnose, or claim to treat, medical conditions.
Nutritional advice is not a substitute for professional medical advice and/or treatment.
Your Clinical Nutritionist may recommend food supplements and/or functional testing as part of your Clinical Nutrition programme and may receive a commission on these products or services.
Standards of professional practice in Clinical Nutrition are governed by the CNHC Code of Conduct.
This document only covers the practice of Clinical Nutrition within this consultation, and your practitioner will make it clear if he or she intends to step outside this boundary.
The Client understands and agrees to the following:–
I am responsible for contacting my GP about any health concerns.
I give permission for you to contact my GP regarding any agreed aspects of my case: YES
If I am receiving treatment from my GP, or any other medical provider, I should tell him/her about any nutritional strategy provided by my Clinical Nutritionist (KATSIARYNA EMELJANA). This is necessary because of any possible reaction between medication and the nutritional programme.
It is important that I tell my Clinical Nutritionist (KATSIARYNA EMELJANA) about any medical diagnosis, medication, herbal medicine, or food supplements, I am taking as this may affect the nutritional programme.
If I am unclear about the agreed Clinical Nutrition (KATSIARYNA EMELJANA) programme/food supplement doses/time period, I should contact my Clinical Nutritionist (KATSIARYNA EMELJANA) promptly for clarification.
I must contact my Clinical Nutritionist (KATSIARYNA EMELJANA) should I wish to continue any specified supplement programme for longer than the original agreed period, to avoid any potential adverse reactions.
Recording consultations using any form of electronic media is not allowed without the written permission by both KATSIARYNA EMELJANA and you the client.
