Foundations of Pharmacology Masterclass with Debbie Grayson

17th of July 2024 at 10:00 am - 4:45 pm BST | Becketts Farm, Heath Suite Conference Centre Birmingham

We are thrilled to announce our must attend in-person masterclass; curated specifically to help nutritional therapists gain greater confidence in working with clients on prescribed medications.

Through Debbie’s expansive knowledge of pharmacology and nutrition knowhow we will explore the fundamentals of assessing your supplement and nutraceutical protocols for interactions with prescribed medication. 

We will start the day with a look at interaction mechanisms and gaining a better understanding of how they occur including looking out for those unexpected interactions. Many medications deplete the body of key nutrients and this can be a major cause of adverse medication events, this is discussed in detail. 

We will then move on to practical group work discussing how the key classes of medications exert their effects and how we can support clients taking those medications; such as PPI’s, antidepressants, statins and antihypertensives through the lens of nutritional therapy, whilst ensuring that our approach does not cause a significant interaction. 

We finish the day examining techniques to improve collaboration with GPs and cement the learning with a look at some client case studies to put the learning into practice. 

As so many clients are on prescribed medication, this truly is a must attend masterclass for every practising nutritional therapist to allow you to practise with greater confidence and conviction.

We have purposely chosen this venue to allow more practitioners from around the UK better accessibility, and for its surroundings, to be in nature rather than a conference room in the basement of a huge hotel!

This masterclass is for you if you ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do you worry that the recommendations you make in clinic might interfere with your clients medication?
  • Do you spend hours double checking that everything in your plan is safe to take alongside their GP prescribed medication?
  • Do you know where to look to find information on how the medication is affecting your client and what nutrients may be depleted?
  • Do you shy away from recommending supplements in case there is an interaction?
  • Do you feel as if all the time spent on researching and writing plans means that you are not earning the income you desire?
  • Would you like to spend less time researching and more time seeing more clients?

Learning outcomes 

  • Learn the mechanisms of action to many frequently prescribed medications, and how they affect the clients you work with
  • Learn how to make better sense of the information provided by online interaction checkers
  • How to better monitor your client for unexpected interactions and what to do should that happen
