Constipation: a multidisciplinary approach to helping patients
Listen now
Description
One in four Australians (more than 6 million people) are affected by constipation (1). As dietitians, we know that food and nutrition is central to solving the problem and so ask many questions about bowel movements and fibre intake – but there is another consideration to make. In this podcast, we sit down with dietitian Elissa Robbins and physiotherapist Brooke Dobo to talk about the considerations for patients with constipation, experiences and the case studies from their practice.
