Adult NFPE Hands-On Training Workshop
Monday, September 18, 2017
Inova Alexandria Hospital, Alexandria, VA
7:30am – 4:45pm
Please join us for an interactive, hands-on NFPE training workshop to provide registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) with the skills and knowledge necessary to perform NFPEs at their clinic, hospital, or patient center to aid in the diagnosis of malnutrition.
After attending the NFPE Hands-On Training Workshop, the RDN workshop participant will be able to:
- Recognize the role of the NFPE in identifying malnutrition
- Assess muscle wasting and fat loss
- Evaluate the presence of edema or fluid accumulation
- Identify clinical signs of micronutrient deficiencies and toxicities
- Measure functional status using hand grip strength dynamometer
- Demonstrate basic NFPE skills on actual patients**
Attendees have the opportunity to practice on real patients during rounds with Academy trainers in very small groups (6 participants and 1 trainer)
Attendees earn 10 CEUs**
Attendees are also prepared to return to their facility and train RDN colleagues who can in turn earn 8 CEUs at NO additional charge. Ask your facility whether they will reimburse your costs!
**In order to be eligible to participate in patient rounds and to receive the 10 CEUs, attendees must complete in advance an Attestation Form which attests that they 1) are employed at a health care facility; 2) have successfully completed a standard background check with their health care facility; and 3) are up-to-date on negative drug screen, MMR, Varicella, Tdap, Hepatitis B, and TB (note: documentation of each test, immunization, or vaccine is not needed--only confirmation that attendees are up-to-date on the aforementioned).
