Dr Alison Culkin PhD, BSc, SP, St Mark’s Hospital, Harrow

Alison currently works as a clinical research dietitian in intestinal failure and home parenteral nutrition (HPN) at St Mark’s Hospital in Harrow where she has worked since 1998. St Mark’s is a national centre for the treatment of patients with complex intestinal failure requiring artificial nutrition. Her clinical role involves being a member of the nutrition team initiating and monitoring patients requiring parenteral nutrition and complex enteral nutrition and setting them up for home. She completed her PhD in 2010 investigating the manipulation of amino acids (glutamine and taurine) in HPN on patient outcomes as well as patient knowledge and behaviour change. In addition, she investigated the immune status of patients on HPN specifically their dendritic cell and gut homing lymphocytes function. Her current research involves the assessment of a new oral nutritional supplement for patients with a high output stoma. She has written chapters on intestinal failure for several textbooks, papers and abstracts and teaches nationally and internationally. She is the course leader for the Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition Group (a specialist group of the British Dietetic Association, BDA) clinical update which is a Master’s level course on artificial nutrition support in conjunction with Queen Margaret’s University, Edinburgh. She is also the clinical lead for parenteral nutrition for this PENG. She has represented the dietetic profession on the British Intestinal Failure Alliance (BIFA) committee since April 2015.In March 2017 she became the first registered dietitian to qualify as a supplementary prescriber.

Dr Alison Culkin will present on the non-medical supplementary prescribing course for dietitians, including how she achieved funding, her experience of the course and what she has learnt from it, as well as the challenges. She’ll discuss how this has changed her practice and how this is the helping to promote the profession and the role of leadership in dietetics.
