ACNEM Training - Sunshine Coast, 3-4 March 2018

Neuroinflammatory Conditions 

3 - 4 March, 2 days face-to-face + required activities

Inflammation is implicated in the pathogenesis of a number of conditions that affect the central nervous system. You will learn about how certain endogenous molecules impact on the central nervous system and how these inflammatory complexes contribute to brain tissue injury and neurodegenerative disease.
This training event aims to provide insight into the role of nutritional and environmental medicine and its influence on the underlying physiological issues that contribute to neurodegeneration. Conditions such as Alzheimer's Disease, depression and chronic pain will be presented by industry experts. Come and hear the growing scientific evidence behind the treatment options, pathology testing, dietary interventions and environmental remediation techniques. Learn how to better manage these conditions and improve quality of life for patients.

Learning Outcomes

  • Describe the impact of inflammation on the central nervous system
  • Explain the detrimental influence of the built environment on the central nervous system
  • Identify the role of diet, nutrition and the environment on the management of chronic inflammatory conditions
