Contact Mary Marian, for details concerning this webinar.
In order to perform a comprehensive nutrition assessment, dietitians must learn to perform nutrition-focused physical exam techniques and functional tests. Getting clinical dietitians to the bedside to perform these activities has many advantages including earlier intervention and development of a thorough nutrition care plan as well as increased recognition as a valuable member of the healthcare team.
Learn how and where to look for physical and functional deficiencies in your patient!
