This isn't the course which my friend went on, but it's was similar: http://www.auspen.org.au/events/auspen-advanced-clinical-nutrition-course-2016/
Look at the sponsors: Nestle...... and a Pharma company specializing in chronically ill patients (why are the patients chronically ill, if the diet is so healthy?).
That's a clinical nutrition course, for feeding hospitalized patients. Note the focus points regarding acute phase response, albumin kinetics, and enteral/parenteral nutrition. That's not a course for telling people what to eat at home. And when I go to the US home page of that pharma company, Fresenius Kabi, they have several clinical nutrition products -- that is to say, IVs.
Can you find another one that's more representative of what you're talking about?
