Home and community-based programs with a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) on their staff or that contract with an RDN for services are well-positioned to provide in-home nutrition assessment and consultation. Join the National Resource Center on Nutrition & Aging on Monday, March 6 to learn more about the importance to healthcare entities and caregivers of having an RDN perform an in-home nutrition assessment and guidance on the questions to add or include in your assessment process. A walk-through of a home visit scenario will be included to highlight biological, psychological and social factors that may contribute to malnutrition. Attendees will receive step-by-step instruction on observational, performance-based and self-reported nutrition indicators and hear how they can apply commonly used assessment tools for a functional, cognitive and nutrition-focused physical exam in an in-home setting.
