4 GHP / Q4 2020 NEWS , Clasado announces clinician-led gut health digital event for February 2021. Clasado Biosciences (‘Clasado’), a global leader in the development of clinically proven prebiotic ingredient and product solutions for the human gut microbiome, has announced a brand-new digital event it is co-hosting with The Functional Gut Clinic. The event has been designed to offer healthcare professionals a fresh perspective on the digestive health patient journey. On February 4 2021, virtual event ‘Digestive Health & Wellbeing: The Patient Journey’ invites dietitians, nutritionists, general practitioners and other healthcare professionals to explore the current state of play for patients seeking support for digestive concerns in primary care and beyond. The event features a diverse line-up of speakers that represent the key stages of care, to discuss today’s gut health challenges from their perspective. In taking a clinician-led view, Clasado, the developer behind high profile prebiotic supplement range Bimuno®, is aiming to help delegates create a stronger understanding of the stages of care and a more well-rounded understanding of gut health today. The event is Fresh Perspective endorsed by the British Dietetic Association and delegates can gain CPD points from attending. Per Rehné, CEO at Clasado, commented: “We partner with healthcare professionals every day, so we have developed a great understanding of the challenges they face, as well as those of the patients and clients they serve. There is a clear need for better gut health understanding, but crucially for medical professionals, it must be in the context of the digestive health journey. Our goal is that in supporting better understanding of the wider process, delegates will be able to use their own knowledge more confidently.” “We are welcoming a fantastic and experienced panel of speakers, who will explain ‘gut health’ through their unique experience. This follows the journey of care, but also includes engaging sessions on gut microbiome research, which will cover areas such as the effect of diet and nutrition on digestive health, the role of prebiotics and probiotics in supporting immune health, and the connection between the gut microbiome and athletic performance. We look forward to welcoming healthcare professionals to a day of engaging sessions that will build a stronger foundation of gut health knowledge to support their patients and clients.”
