EMERGING TRENDS IN DIETETIC ROLES: STEPPING OUTSIDE OF THE OFFICE
As Dietitians, we are privileged that our industry is not intended for just one career path. Not only have dietitians made a name for themselves in the clinical, research, outpatient and foodservice settings, but now also have broken barriers to enter prison systems, sports teams, restaurants of all sizes, social media networks, large corporations and much more. Progressions in technology have made it more convenient for dietitians to serve clients exactly where they are, in real-time. Forging your own path could be the most daunting, yet exhilarating step you may take in your dietetics career. Experience gained throughout school, internships, and field work still may not fully prepare a dietitian for the road less traveled. In this one-hour webinar, dietitians will learn the newest trends in dietetic careers and provide dietitians with valuable tools and resources to help launch their career to the next level. Participants will be able to learn from the recommendations of several dietitians who have experienced huge successes in transitioning to nontraditional nutrition roles. Furthermore, participants will leave with helpful lists of resources needed to shift into a cutting edge role in dietetics.
Upon successful completion of this one-hour course, the participant should be able to:
Understand the benefits to nontraditional nutrition counseling for dietitians and clients alike.
Acquire the steps needed to "step outside the office."
Locate the resources available for Telehealth practice resources.
List HIPAA-compliant telecommunication services.
Learn the regulations and accreditation standards required to facilitate Telehealth and Telenutrition services.
