Spending Medical Visit Time Explaining Diets?
Send Patients to NutriScape.NET Instead
Anxious Patients Need the Help Dietitians Can Provide
Often, patients are fearful and confused about their diagnosis. They listen to the medical provider’s explanations and nod their head, but often don’t feel ready to share their concerns. Too often, patients end up trying to learn medical diet strategies from their family and friends who pass on myths and misinformation.
Referral to a registered dietitian for personalized diagnosis-related nutrition counseling empowers your patients and highlights the importance you place on nutrition as a part of your patient’s medical treatment plan. Unlike a busy medical visit that needs to cover a vast range of critical issues in an extremely short time, nutrition counseling visits allow adequate time for motivational interviewing, support with goal setting, and education on complex relationships between the patient’s food choices, their medical diagnosis, and their overall health.
