Medications & nutrition
Also known as Drug-nutrient interactions and/or drug-nutrition interactions, and/or drug-food interactions.
Prescribed medicines have both healing and harming properties. By identifying the negative nutritional impacts of the prescribed medicines, and implementing strategies to address those harms, the benefits of prescribed medicines are improved and therefore better outcomes for the consumer.

Introducing change is hard ... especially for busy clinicians
Introducing change is always difficult as your current habits and systems are well established ... non-inclusion of new stuff can be an inconvenience.
Initiating new "habits" or systems takes time as you ask questions such as how do we include this important information on our already-crowded assessment page, and/or how do we integrate this information into our clinical management strategies; it requires discussion and resolution.
You also have to decide whether the investment of your time, learning and testing provides a reasonable benefit to the people in your care.
As it is difficult to decide whether a resource like our Medications & Nutrition is worth your investment, this Cheatsheet was developed as a sample of the broad range of applicability of this field in your clinical practice. This is a free gift for you to download - it does not even require your contact details!
Change isn't easy to recognise as it arrives, but it's impossible to forget once it's here.
