A Clinician’s Guide to Improving Therapeutic Outcomes: Why is Nutrition Important?


Course Description

Many patients present to health care professionals with common, yet overlooked, nutritional impairments. These nutritional impairments significantly impact therapeutic outcomes. The health care professional should know how to assess for nutritional deficits and alter treatment plans accordingly.

By having a comprehensive understanding of the relationship of dietary patterns on healing, clinicians will be able to take a wholistic approach to treatment and make the appropriate adjustments to their rehabilitation program as well as recognize the need for referrals and/or rehabilitation team conferences. As a result, patients can achieve their therapeutic goals in less time.
