Two thought provoking days focusing on dietetic practice across the fields of mental health, learning disabilities, autism and eating disorders.
The first day will be led by June Davis. June has 18 years experience working in the NHS, as a dietitian, service and professional lead, general manager for a number of service areas within the acute setting and senior project lead for large scale change across London.
Over the last 10 years she has been Head of Therapies for large acute Trusts. These roles involved both the strategic and operational management of one of the largest therapy services in the UK as well as being at the forefront of integrating research, service delivery and education across therapy services.
June has also undertaken several general management positions within acute Trusts and has led a number of significant change management projects most recently within the AHP team at NHS London. June will focus on Service Development and Commissioning of Dietetic Services in Eating Disorders, Mental Health and Learning Disabilities.
The second day will Include a talk from Professor Jackie Andrade from the University of Plymouth on the Use of Functional Imagery Training to motivate behaviour change. She has been researching the role of imagery and memory in clinical issues for over 25 years, with over 100 publications on topics ranging from obesity and addiction to post-traumatic stress disorder and awareness in anaesthesia. She co-developed Functional Imagery Training (FIT) based on extensive laboratory and field research, with a particular focus on motivation and cravings in relation to eating and physical activity. She is currently completing an NIHR-funded randomised controlled trial of FIT versus motivational interviewing for weight loss.
