Deze e-learning wordt aangeboden in samenwerking met de University of Arizona. De e-learning is al jaren in de VS geaccrediteerd voor 7,25 AMA (Amerikaanse accreditatie) voor alle artsen. De kwaliteit is hoogstaand en er wordt gewerkt met verschillende werkvormen (interactieve casuistiek, quizen en video). De geschatte tijdsinvestering is 7,25 uur.

Integrative Environmental Health: An Introduction

Environmental health is based on the premise that what we eat or are exposed to in our environment directly affects our health. It examines the impact of air pollutants, pesticides, heavy metals, toxicants, and other environmental factors on the health of individuals and populations.

Designed for medical and nursing personnel, this Introduction to Integrative Environmental Health course primarily focuses on the broader patterns of disease caused by environmental toxicants. Learn about major chemicals affecting our health – as we break down impacts through our environment: Air, Land, and Water. Sharing the latest research linking chronic disease and environmental toxicants, students see how to support a patient’s whole health. The course is not an exhaustive review of individual toxicants but focuses on the toxicants of greatest concern and prevalence. Important resources are shared throughout.

Once you’ve completed this Introduction course, enroll in The Integrative Environmental Health: Advanced Approaches. This course will build upon the Introduction course by exploring a more in-depth clinical approach – what populations are most at risk, how to take an environmental health patient history, emerging research, and case-based learning – to reinforce clinical relevance.

Course Objectives

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Appraise the emerging research links between environmental toxicants and the documented rise of complex chronic illnesses, such as obesity, metabolic syndrome, cancers, neurodevelopmental disorders, and reproductive health.
  2. Identify how an integrative medicine model may be applied in the prevention of environmentally-associated diseases.
  3. Identify the primary categories of chemical toxicants present in the environment and interpret how their mechanisms of action may impact human health.
  4. Recognize and identify the range of toxicants known to demonstrate endocrine disruptor activity in humans.
  5. Acquire familiarity with consumer resources that can help individuals reduce unnecessary environmental toxicant exposures and recognize how cultural and socioeconomic status may influence their number of exposures and ability to limit exposure.
  6. Identify several resources for patients and clinicians interested in environmental advocacy.

Accreditatie:

AVIG: Deze e-learning is voor 7,25 punten  algemeen medische nascholing (AMN), integrale nascholing (IG) of natuurgeneeskunde nascholing (NG) naar keuze bij de AVIG geaccrediteerd.

KNMG: Voor huisartsen, medische specialisten en andere artsen: Ondanks dat deze elearning voor Amerikaanse artsen geaccrediteerd is, heeft de KNMG geen accreditatiepunten toegekend. Wel is het mogelijk -zoals vaker bij internationale scholingen/congressen- om met het Amerikaanse certificaat (7,25 CME) dat je per mail ontvangt, bij je eigen wetenschappelijke vereniging een individueel verzoek tot accreditatie in te dienen.
