Program Overview

Making and sustaining changes in dietary habits, physical activity levels and smoking cessation are integral components of reducing cardiovascular disease risk, specifically in reaching target blood pressure, weight, and lipid goals. Providing the information, support and tools to patients in a brief clinical encounter can pose a difficult challenge for nurses, advanced practice nurses, dietitians, and exercise specialists. These challenges commonly present as gaps in the availability of time, easily accessible tools, or expertise.

In this web-based presentation, Jane Nelson-Worel APRN-BC, APNP, Lynne T. Braun PhD, CNP and Catherine Christie PhD, RD explore common challenges, practical solutions, and a new collection of simple tools and resources to support your work and your patients’ efforts.

Learning Objectives

After this webinar, participants will be able to:

• Describe the integration of brief dietary counseling into a clinical visit.

• Define the concept of “exercise is medicine.”

• Demonstrate how patient education tools can be used to supplement the clinical encounter
