As nutrition experts, dietitians and nutritionists must understand and be able to interpret evidence-based nutrition information as it relates to diabetes management. This process can be overwhelming for health care professionals as well as people living with diabetes, especially as the use of telehealth platforms increases.
During this session, Susan Weiner, MS, RDN, CDN, CDES, FADCES, will break down and discuss the latest updates and additions to the diabetes clinical guidelines in order to help RDs promote positive health outcomes and lower complication risk. Susan will also detail how to incorporate these new recommendations into a virtual or in-person practice using non-judgmental language and a truly collaborative approach.
After attending this session, nutrition professionals should be able to:
- Describe the importance of MNT for people living with diabetes (PWD).
- Discuss how macronutrients affect blood glucose levels.
- Explain how to communicate with clients/patients using a telehealth platform.
