Prepare to effectively counsel patients on the relationship between diet, physical activity and cancer risk with this new evidence-based course!
This continuing professional education self-study course includes required reading of The Diet and Physical Activity Guideline published by the American Cancer Society (ACS) in which a national panel of cancer researchers and experts in the fields of prevention, epidemiology, public health, and policy present the most up-to-date evidence on the relationships between diet, physical activity, and cancer risk. Recommendations are based on individual dietary choices and physical activity patterns, as well as community action steps that may foster a supportive social and physical environment in order to ensure success. The 2020 ACS guideline is in alignment with recommendations made by the American Heart Association, the American Diabetes Association, the 2015 to 2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans and the 2018 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans.
This course and the required reading of the ACS Guideline (link included in the course document) will familiarize the participant with recent recommendations and research regarding cancer, in preparation for effectively counseling patients on this subject. The CPE course requires the learner to apply the information in the Guideline document to a case-study based exam.
The course includes ten case study based questions that require the learner to apply the information as if implementing it into practice.
Purchasing Options: Course includes a link to the required reading in the course document, electronic test, and 1 certificate with passing grade. If you already have the book, use the “additional certificate” option.
