CPD podcast: Advice on vitamin use

CPD podcast: Advice on vitamin use

Following Public Health England's announcement last month (July 21) that everyone needs 10 micrograms of vitamin D a day, C+D spoke to dietitian Ms Rothband to separate the vitamin myths from reality. 

In this C+D clinical podcast you will learn:

  • What advice pharmacists should give about vitamin D
  • The dangers of treating supplements as if they are "milkshakes"
  • How to separate credible nutritional information from the "rubbish"
  • Why folic acid is not routinely added to food
  • The Department of Health recommendations for vitamin supplementation in children
  • The risks of offering fat-soluble vitamins to pregnant women.

Last year, over 2,500 pharmacy professionals fulfilled their CPD through Update Plus. Find out more at Update Plus.
