During the workshop, we will answer the following strategic questions:

1. How can we incorporate the latest research on the microbiome for the best outcomes?
2. What challenges and opportunities exist in the current use of probiotics and prebiotics?
3. In what ways can next-generation probiotics, prebiotics and metabolites revolutionize patient care?
4. How do we select and provide the right probiotics, prebiotics or metabolites to patients in 2024?
5. How can patient education on probiotics and prebiotics be improved for better self-management?
6. What role do probiotics and prebiotics play in personalized medicine and patient-specific treatments?
7. How can regulatory standards for probiotic and prebiotic products be enhanced to ensure quality and efficacy?
8. How to ensure marketing does not overshadow evidence-based probiotic / prebiotic benefits?
9. What is the optimal mode of probiotic and prebiotic administration: tablets, food, or fermented products?
10. What are the established safety limits for probiotic and prebiotic consumption?


The workshop's goal is to equip medical professionals with in-depth knowledge of the clinical applications of microbiota research, emphasizing the prescription of probiotics and prebiotics, the future potential of these treatments in health and disease.
