[Recording] Cultural Competence Series in Dietetics Practice : South Asian Diet & Traditions

Do you feel slightly unprepared when you have a client who is looking for nutrition help and needs support that will allow them to integrate their cultural practices, foods and traditions? South Asian Canadians in Metro Vancouver are the third-largest ethnic group in the region, comprising more than 12% of the total population(from 2016 data).

Some examples of the requests we get from clients include :

-"I am looking for registered dietitian services, who can help me with weight loss and nutrition. Also someone can make my meal plan with regular Indian foods.
-"Need some assistance for my parents, they are heart patients and have some other issues with kidneys. Hoping you could assist in putting a healthy diet together that includes both Indian and western foods."
-"I’m interested in guidance to manage my diabetes and help in Indian cooking. I'm also a vegetarian"

This webinar will provide you with an understanding of the diversity of South Asian culture from the lens of 3 South Asian dietitians. Each with a different cultural background, they will offer their perspectives drawing from their own culture and interactions with South Asian clients.

In this 1.5h webinar, you will...

-Learn about the South Asian culture, way of eating and traditional foods and what that looks like in Canada and North America
-Learn key ingredients, common foods and cooking methods that are different to the Western culture
-Learn about the common nutrition topics when working with the the South Asian population in nutrition counseling (ie. diabetes, plant based diet, family nutrition, feeding children, disordered eating, new immigrants, etc)
