Developing a Nutrition Program

Dietitians are essential to successful treatment with nutritional therapy. Enteral nutrition and therapeutic diets require much personal motivation and skills to navigate dietary changes in order to maintain adherence. Knowledgeable dietitians can provide proper patient education to improve compliance and foster support and encouragement.

To enhance knowledge of these complex diets and their implementation, providers (physicians, dietitians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and social workers) may opt to travel for on-site training.
