The Science of Dietary Fibre & Digestive Health – for Pharmacists

This course is aimed at pharmacists and aims to explain the science behind the different types of dietary fibre, current UK intakes of fibre and the foods that provide fibre in the diet, and the practical ways that people can increase their fibre intake, including case studies with specific information on a number of health conditions.

The course covers:

  • Module 1 – The science of dietary fibre
  • Module 2 – Fibre in the UK diet
  • Module 3 – Gut health – helping people increase their fibre intake

Each module has an end test, providing you with feedback on your progress. Further reading is also suggested.

On successful completion of a final assessment, a personalised BNF certificate is created. (The final assessment may be repeated.)

This course will take approximately 1-2 hours to complete. You can complete the course at your own pace – there is no time limit.

BNF is grateful for the financial support provided by Kellogg’s to produce these training modules. However the content has been developed by BNF alone.
