Strategies for Your Registered Dietitian Nutritionist to Add Value and Increase Your Organization’s Engagement in the Healthcare Arena
Hosted by the National Resource Center on Nutrition and Aging (NRCNA)
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.
Presenters: Holly Kellner Greuling, RDN, National Nutritionist at the Administration for Community Living, and Susan Saffel-Shrier, MS, RDN, Adjunct Professor in the Division of Nutrition at the University of Utah
