Drug-Induced Nutrient Depletion – 3 Hours

$15.00

Description

The use of multiple prescription drugs is on the rise, especially among the aging population. However, these drugs may cause a depletion of crucial nutrients in the body. Lack of awareness on the part of prescribing physicians, as well as prolonged drug therapy, are significant risk factors for developing drug-induced nutrient depletion. Patients who exhibit these risk factors should be targeted for interventions aimed at preventing drug-induced nutrient depletion.

  • Identify risk factors for nutrient deficiencies.
  • Discuss the prevalence of nutrient deficiencies.
