Summary

In today’s digital era, information, and misinformation, is readily available for most people via media outlets, social media and online streaming videos. Nutrition is of utmost interest due to its role in health, fitness and weight management. Because of the public interest and information availability, a general, evidence-based nutrition counseling should be provided by all qualified health care providers to appropriate patients in an effort to refute any misunderstandings and deliver accurate guidance.
 
This session will discuss common nutritional “myths” and how to use evidence-based practice to answer patient questions in regard to diets, weight loss, cardiovascular health and athletic performance. The session will also discuss the physical therapist and physical therapist assistant’s scope of practice in terms of nutrition counseling and how to practice within this scope. The course is designed to provide a source of practitioner and patient evidence-based nutritional education to facilitate the nutritional counseling process.
