The Physical Health of Medical Students: A Comparison between New Zealand and Canada

Dr Fiona Moir

The Physical Health of Medical Students: A Comparison between New Zealand and Canada: Doctors’ health can affect their care of patients, and the Auckland SAFE-DRS health and wellbeing curriculum aims to enable students to optimise their own physical and psychological health. This first stage of the SAFE-DRS study reports physical health data: alcohol use, nutrition, exercise and smoking.

 

Nutritional Status in Advanced Age

Dr Ruth Teh

Senior Lecturer in the Department of General Practice and Primary Healthcare, Population Health, Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences

New Zealand’s population is ageing and by 2050, 23% of the population will be aged 65+ years; about 7% will be aged 85+ years. In this talk, I aim to answer the question, “How does nutrition influence the maintenance of good health and quality of life in older adults?”
