About Mrs Ozerianskaya
I graduated from Tbilisi State Medical Institute, Georgia in 1986 and moved to London with my sons and husband in 1992. In 1997, I gained a BSc in Human Nutrition and Dietetics at the University of North London.
I have now been working at The Clementine Churchill Hospital for the last 20 years and my NHS base is at Northwick Park and St Mark’s Hospital.
I provide dietetic advice on a range of conditions.
I am an active member of gastroenterology, allergy, obesity/diabetic and cardiovascular special interest groups. I was also involved in developing the BDA (British Dietetic Association) factsheet on stanols and sterols and the food factsheet on fibre. My dietetic input includes:
- Intravenous, enteral and oral nutrition support
- Dietary advice on various therapeutic diets
The main objective of my input is to optimise my patients' nutrition and improve their symptoms by offering dietary advice and counselling (including using behavioural change techniques).
I have eight years’ experience as a specialist bariatric dietitian, having worked within a multi-disciplinary bariatric team that included surgeons, nurses and GPs. I also worked for the St Mark's multi-disciplinary (MDT) on surgical inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and colorectal cancer patients.
I have also completed the training course in low FODMAP diets at King’s College and have been training other dietitians on using low FODMAP diets at London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust. I also provide educational sessions and mentoring on the management of obese patients.
I also provide training on a regular basis on malnutrition universal screening tool (MUST), nasogastric tube feeding, Never Events and intravenous nutrition. On a voluntary basis, I have presented talks on obesity, heart disease and IBS to the general public in a community centre setting.
I love cooking, hiking, dancing, walking in nature, reading historical books and looking after my grandchildren.
