The third edition of Nutrition Care of the Older Adult provides practical guidance for either the new or experienced practitioners on all aspects of nutrition and health care delivery systems for older adults.
It is anticipated that the number of older adults aged 65 and up will reach 84 million by 2050. Advances in medicine and technology will continue to increase life expectancy. The focus on person-directed care and the changes in health care delivery systems offer new challenges and opportunities for dietetics professionals.
The registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) with the assistance of the nutrition and dietetics technician registered (NDTR) must provide a high level of medical nutrition therapy (MNT) for the clients they serve by assessing nutrition needs, developing individualized goals, monitoring the implementation of these goals, documenting pertinent data, and evaluating results with outcome research consideration.
In addition to providing MNT, the RDN must consider all of the laws and regulations that impact the care delivery for older adults. This CPE self-study course reviews the most recent standards of compliance such as federal regulations, quality assurance and performance improvement, and the scope of practice for the RDN and NDTR.
Course includes hard copy book and 1 certificate.
