You Are What You Eat! Time to Exercise the Use of Nutrition in Physical Therapy

presented by Patrick Berner, PT, DPT, RDN

(2 CEs)

The phrase “You Are What You Eat” applies to everyone, even our patients, but nutrition is often not addressed in physical therapy practice. Practitioners should be equipped with the knowledge of the role that nutrition plays, in not only rehabilitation outcomes, but how it affects our patient’s day to day, their risk of developing chronic disease, and their overall quality of life. However, it is critical in knowing the appropriate time to intervene and whether or not our patients deserve referral and/or inter-professional collaboration with a nutrition professional. This course will provide attendees with the resources and skills to appropriately implement nutritional concepts into patient care. Including the determination of nutritional needs, navigating professional scopes of practice, and using a patient’s readiness to change to provide the most appropriate evidence-informed nutritional education.

Link to participate will be emailed to registrants prior to presentation date.

This presentation is offered as a live event only.
