Presenter: Adrienne Junek, MD, CCFP, ABOIM, IFMCP

This program will help clinicians identify and prevent drug-induced nutrient depletion (DIND) as a potential cause of medication side effects experienced by their patients. Ten cases focused on commonly prescribed medications will be presented for discussion during this interactive program.

Learning objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Define what drug-induced nutrient depletion is, and recognize the related mechanisms and strategies for prevention.
  • Define the adequate intake (AI), estimated average requirement (EAR) and recommended daily allowance (RDA) for nutrient intakes.
  • Name three commonly prescribed medications associated with drug-induced nutrient depletion.
  • Identify drug-induced nutrient depletion as a potential mechanism for clinically relevant medication side effects in three scenarios.

This 1-credit-per-hour Group Learning program has been certified by the College of Family Physicians of Canada for up to 1.5 Mainpro+ credits.
