Dietary Supplements
DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
The dietary supplement industry contributes more than $60 billion to the US economy and as registered dietitians, it is our job to be well-informed about the potential benefits or harmful effects of dietary supplementation. Despite this, there is very little training on dietary supplements in most dietetic programs. In this 1-hour presentation, you will learn the scientific, legal, ethical and business aspects of recommending or selling dietary supplements. In addition, we will explore ways to safely and effectively integrate dietary supplements into clinical practice for improved patient outcomes.
Upon successful completion of this one-hour course, the participant should be able to:
  • Review current regulatory standards and scope of practice for dietary supplements.


  • Discuss the scientific, legal, ethical and business aspects of recommending or selling dietary supplements.


  • Examine resources for evaluating safety and efficacy of dietary supplements.


  • Identify ways to integrate dietary supplements into clinical practice.
