Nutrition Toolkit

Overview

Overview

Proper nutrition promotes health and has a role in preventing and managing diseases such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and obesity. Just as nutritional needs change over the lifespan, patients with chronic diseases need nutrition tailored to their specific medical conditions.

This toolkit seeks to equip PAs across all specialties and settings with the knowledge and skills to effectively address nutrition-related issues in their practice in order to promote optimal health for their patients. Use the resources here to earn relevant CME, improve patient care, advise patients and caregivers, and advocate for change.

Coming Soon!

AAPA is in the process of conducting a PA needs assessment that will inform development of a foundational CME curriculum on nutrition as well as specialty- and population-specific nutrition CME courses.

In the meantime, check out the Comprehensive Lifestyle Intervention module from Obesity Leadership Edge, which addresses topics such as assessment of eating patterns, problematic eating behaviors, and socioeconomic issues related to dietary behaviors.
