Adult NFPE Hands-On Training Workshop

October 20 @ 7:00 am - 3:30 pm

Please join us for an interactive, hands-on NFPE training workshop to provide registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) with the skills and knowledge necessary to perform NFPEs at their clinic, hospital, or patient center to aid in the diagnosis of malnutrition.  After attending the NFPE Hands-On Training Workshop, the RDN workshop participant will be able to:
  • Recognize the role of the NFPE in identifying malnutrition
  • Assess muscle wasting and fat loss
  • Evaluate the presence of edema or fluid accumulation
  • Identify clinical signs of micronutrient deficiencies and toxicities
  • Measure functional status using hand grip strength dynamometer
  • Demonstrate basic NFPE skills on actual patients

Attendees have the opportunity to practice on real patients during rounds with Academy trainers in very small groups (6 participants and 1 trainer).

Attendees earn 10 CPEUs and are also prepared to return to their facility and peer train RDN colleagues who can in turn earn 8 CEUs for $75.

This training workshop is offered by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
