  • Recognize the role of the NFPE in identifying malnutrition
  • Assess muscle wasting and subcutaneous fat loss, including MUAC
  • 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
  • Earn 10 CEUs!
Each RDN participant will receive the Pediatric NFPE Pocket Guide, medical penlight, Pediatric NFPE Skills Assessment form, presentation handout, and post-workshop support!
Attendees will receive training with real-time feedback in both a small group setting (6 participants to 1 Academy NFPE trainer), as well as a one-on-one Pediatric NFPE skills assessment with an NFPE Trainer following the workshop!

The Live Virtual Pediatric NFPE Hands-on Training Workshop will be conducted on the Zoom platform and include the presentation, demonstrations, breakout sessions, and more!
