3A - Education - Inspiring interprofessional education
Interprofessional education (IPE) is a paedagogical approach for preparing students of the health professions to provide patient care in a collaborative team environment. Embedding IPE within core curricula remains a significant challenge. This session aims to illustrate what an IPE programme can look like and which tools can be used.
3B - Clinical - Malnutrition and dietary treatment in older adults
With an ageing population and growing pressures on health and social care systems, there is a need to maintain quality of life and independence in older adults. Good nutrition plays a huge role in maintaining health, prevention of malnutrition and its consequences. Preventing malnutrition, sarcopenia and frailty will ultimately enable older people to remain active and independent in their activities of daily living. Our session will discuss nutritional challenges faced in this population group and strategies to improve nutritional intake and nutritional status.
3C - Public Health - Nutrition: Athlete's Ally
This session will discuss nutrition techniques that will improve the health of sports people and the performance of athletes.
3D - Research - Breaking the boundary of possibilities with E-Health tools
As more and more professions begin to integrate new technological possibilities into their work, dietitians are not being left behind. This session will provide information about what dietitians can accomplish with the help of E–Health tools and how this can support us in patient care and in research projects.

4A - Education - Hands-on workshop: How to write an abstract
An abstract is the best resume needed to decide whether a research article should be considered for our purposes. In this workshop you will be able to improve your skills when drafting an abstract, as well as, to identify the different sections a good abstract should have.
4B - Clinical - Breaking the boundaries between theory and practice in oncology
Explanation will follow
4C - Public Health - Taking sustainable diets forward
Sustainability of food systems is high on the agendas of governments committed to achieving the sustainable development goals. The session will provide insights into how this commitment is being addressed to help consumers adopt healthier and more sustainable eating patterns. It will also showcase how dietitians play an important role in taking sustainable diets forward.
4D - Research - The power of working together across disciplines
Dietitians are experts in the field of nutrition and dietetics. Their work aims to improve health. This can only be done in cooperation with others. Multi-disciplinary working will increase impact of dietetics.

Parallel Sessions – Round 5

5A - Education - Research added value to teaching
Dietitians are evidence-based practitioners, hence research informed teaching and research skill development while at University play key roles in both inspiring and equipping dietitians. A panel of research experts will share their experiences of student involvement in research and best practice guidance.
5B - Clinical - Obesity management in Europe
This session will present results of the collaboration with the European Association for the Study of Obesity (EASO) with concrete deliverables.
5C - Public Health - Prevention and workplace health promotion - a place to be for dietitians
To tackle risk factors before people get ill in different settings is the target of preventive activities. For adopting programmes to the needs of the target group, actors have to analyse economic, social, gender, behavioural and environmental determinants and resources. This session will present modells, skills and projects in Higher Education Institutes and in different public settings.
5D - Research - Involvement of dietitians in primary care
The review of the scientific literature concludes that investment in dietitians in primary care provides high returns. In order to facilitate their involvement, it is necessary to establish guiding principles for their performance: definition of ratios, work resources, skills and performance indicators, harmonization of procedures, interventions and systems of report.
5E - Supported - Sustainable solutions for feeding a growing global population: unlocking the power of dairy
With mounting human and planetary health challenges and opportunities, learn about the latest research supporting dairy’s role in health and sustainable food systems. Join an interactive discussion on opportunities for dietitians in sustainable nutrition and access resources to learn more.
