Educating health professionals about Australian olive products (OL19001)
What’s it all about?
Now in its second phase, this investment is responsible for disseminating evidence-based health information about olive products to an audience of Australian healthcare professionals and other health-interested professionals (such as those in the fitness industry and life coaches). The information is also available to students of health-related disciplines, researchers, olive growers and olive processors.
Following on from Educating health professionals about Australian olive products (OL17002) the new project will build on its predecessor’s learnings to develop more targeted resources for each interested stakeholder group.
The information is being delivered through an expanded Olive Wellness Institute (developed by Boundary Bend), and the goal is to equip the target audiences with the knowledge needed to be able to advise patients, clients and the wider public on including healthy olive products in their daily life.
Progress continues with new information and resources being distributed through the Olive Wellness Institute website.
Two new articles on the health benefits of olive oil have been uploaded to the website, along with a podcast recording tailored for General Practitioners (GPs) which talks of the proven benefits olive oil has on inflammation, endothelial function, hypertension, insulin sensitivity and diabetes.
