Subiaco Webinar series: Cardiology with Dr Johan Janssen
In the first webinar of the series, St John of God Subiaco Hospital and Western Cardiology Cardiologist Dr Johan Janssen, will discuss dietary prevention of cardiovascular disease.
Dr Janssen will explore what to advise your patients on diet and lifestyle with regards to cardiovascular health and health promotion.
Diets including paleo, keto, dietary approaches to stop hypertension (DASH) and the Mediterranean diet will be discussed in combination with lifestyle advice.
The webinar will also discuss some of the challenges GPs face when discussing health concerns with patients. In a world where lifestyle advice is so accessible, this webinar will explore the consultation challenges where the patient has asked ‘goop’first.
This webinar will provide evidence based research to assist GPs in having conversations with patients about non-medicine based strategies in the management of cardiovascular disease risk.
By attending this webinar, GPs will be able to:
- Identify the barriers health professionals, face when talking to our patients about diet and lifestyle.
- Discuss the science based advice around food, supplements and lifestyle in managing cardiovascular disease.
- Describe tips to guide your patients towards getting the information they need and want.
