Following two successful events held in 2015, SENr are hosting their next event at BDA Live.

The session is being held alongside the Sport Nutrition Specialist Group.

The programme is themed around the Rio Olympic Games 2016 with a focus on what those working in clinical practice can learn from performance nutritionists working in elite sport and vice versa. The aim is to identify commonality (where practice aligns) and alternative approaches where it differs.


The inaugural lecture of the Professor Clyde Williams OBE Award (2015-16) for Sport and Exercise Nutrition (Education /or Research) awarded to Laurent Bannock for the Guru Performance podcasts.

Can the clinical and sport world collide in dietetics?

Sharon Madigan, Sports Dietitian / Respiratory Dietitian, BDA Sport Nutrition Group

Can the skills we acquire in clinical dietetics help in the provision of nutrition support to athletes and coaches and vice versa? Dietitians can bring many skills to the sporting environment and we as clinical practitioners can learn equally important skills from sport. This presentation will look at nutrition support and give examples from areas such as respiratory, body composition assessment, IBS and disordered eating behaviour and highlight experiences where both worlds collide.
