Upskilling health professionals about the importance of what’s on our plates.
Our region faces a growing epidemic of chronic non-communicable diseases. This
proliferation of ill health has many of us beginning to look more critically at what
we eat. Health professionals play a key role in helping our communities embrace
this shift towards healthy nutrition.
In February 2023, health promotion charity Doctors For Nutrition will host the
Australasian Nutrition in Healthcare Conference (NIHC). It will provide everyone
from general practitioners, medical specialists and healthcare students, through
to those simply interested in exploring the diet/disease relationship, the
opportunity to expand their nutrition expertise.
NIHC will see some of the biggest names in whole food plant-based nutrition and
healthcare arrive in Melbourne to present their indispensable knowledge and
research. More than 20 medical and dietetic expert speakers will showcase both
the long-established and the latest research on whole food plant-based nutrition.
Hear from Dr Dean Sherzai, Dr Ayesha Sherzai, Dr Alan Desmond, Dr Gemma
Newman, the list goes on.
You’ll learn about the role of diet in the prevention, management and reversal of
numerous chronic disease conditions. Topics to be covered include; brain health,
gut health, heart health, hormonal health, skin conditions, cancer, type 2 diabetes,
weight management, food systems and the environment.
Along with the in-depth and enlightening educational program, the conference
offers social events, workshops, a cooking demonstration and opportunities to
connect and network with other delegates, speakers and sponsors.
Doctors For Nutrition’s peak social event is the Nutrition in Healthcare Conference

The general understanding of trauma care is that it is a time critical condition. Hence, the ideal system for managing trauma patients is one in which the time from injury to definitive care is minimised. However, time from injury to definitive care for rural trauma patients is prolonged due to accessibility and geology. There is also a higher incidence of farming, mining, industrial and motor vehicle accidents, as well as greater access to firearms in isolated areas.
It is widely recognised General Practitioners, particularly those in, rural and remote locations will be called upon to manage trauma in its early phase. Therefore, General practitioners in rural and remote areas require a higher level of emergency care skills to manage the trauma patient until specialist care can be accessed.
The objective of this workshop is to provide rural doctors and nurses with cross domain, team-based learning opportunities across a number of topics such as severe and less severe trauma, advances in trauma care, x-rays in trauma, procedures in trauma including ICC insertion, lateral canthotomy, burns, plastering and paediatric trauma.
- Participants will gain an overview of the basic principles in key areas of trauma management.
- Implement a systematic assessment of a trauma patient in the rural Emergency Department.
- Utilise communication and team leadership skills including complex decision making and crisis management.
- Demonstrate trauma skills inclusive of chest tube insertion, Intraosseous insertion, binders and splints.
