This paper involves discussion based learning and students are expected to complete any required pre-learning material and contribute to class discussion. This reflects working as an evidence-based nutrition practitioner. In addition, an ISAK Level 1 Body Composition course is included in HUNT445. The course is subsidised by the department, but there is a nominal charge which covers the ISAK membership and a manual. You can undertake the course without joining ISAK, but you will not be eligible for the qualification.
