The Leeds course in Clinical Nutrition, now in its 35th year, was restructured and developed in 2013 to be more clinically focused and include interactive workshops with practical elements following our delegates' feedback and training requirements. The course ran over 3 full days instead of 3 days over 4, again this was in response to our previous delegates feedback.

Course aims and objectives:
The course is intended to provide a through grounding in all aspects of clinical nutrition and aims:
• To summarise national nutrition drivers to provide a foundation for the course.
• To increase awareness of nutritional compromise and its consequences; give practical guidance on assessment of patients, and discuss particular patient groups (surgical patients, those with irritable bowel syndrome, renal disease, eating disorders and liver disease).
• To discuss practicalities of feeding in terms of ethics, different methods of feeding and understand more about different techniques to give artificial nutrition.
• To examine the value of nutrition for paediatric patients (early diet and consequences, metabolic problems, Crohn's and parenteral nutrition).
• To establish principles of nutritional importance in extreme clinical situations (short bowel syndrome, refeeding syndrome, parenteral nutrition)
