Description

Patient care in the 21st century has never been more exciting or challenging. There is a renewed interest in natural products to treat illness and to maintain wellness. Dietary supplements are the fastest growing category of the selfmedication market. With more than 30,000 supplements available on the market and 1,000 new ones added each year, it is imperative that health care professionals become more informed about herbal and dietary supplements that may have significant pharmacological effects on our patients. From an evidence based perspective, this course will review the top selling dietary supplements and their implications in clinical practice including product description, popular uses, active ingredients, dosage, herbal drug interactions, safety, contraindications and clinical considerations. In addition, natural products available for oral health will be reviewed and discussed.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Assess the value of understanding herbal supplements in healthcare to make informed decisions about treatment modifications.
  • List and describe commonly used herbal supplements.
  • Compare and contrast the daily dosage, common uses, mechanism of action, side effects, and interactions of common herbal supplements.
