SSIEM Dietitians Academy 2024 - Glutaric Aciduria Type 1

24 - 25 January 2024, Virtual

What is the purpose of the SSIEM DG Academy?

For many IMDs, diet therapy is the fundamental treatment. Metabolic dietetics is a highly specialised area and the aim of the SSIEM –DG group is to provide access to training, education and research to help provide the best available practice.

One main aim of the SSIEM-DG is to provide education and training for dietitians and nutritionists caring for IMD patients.

Over the next few years, the SSIEM-DG Committee in conjunction with the SSIEM Education and Training Advisory Committee (ETAC) aims to host a series of educational events providing teaching on key topics of metabolic dietetics. These courses will be taught by expert dietitians and other professionals in the field and include plenary lectures, practical workshops and new research work. Starting from 2021, four academy courses have been organized, and the diseases covered so far include PKU, MSUD, MMA, and UCD.


Who is the GA1 Course for?

This course is aimed primarily at dietitians and nutritionists who are new to IMD and metabolic dietetics and want to learn more about practical dietetic management and monitoring of GA1. Doctors with no dietitians in their team, who are providing dietetic management, can be considered for the application.
