Nutritional Fact Sheets

What are the Fact Sheets for?
Good nutrition is essential for our health and wellbeing but there is some confusion about what we need to stay healthy.  The Self Care Forum Nutritional Fact Sheets aim to help clinicians and patients understand various vitamins and minerals and discuss issues around self care within the practice consultation.  They provide patients with information around:

  • Useful facts
  • Why nutrients are important
  • Where nutrients are found
  • Recommended intakes
  • Deficiency
  • Safety and risks.
