What is Evidenced Based care?

When it comes to your health, do you prefer someone’s personal opinion or advice based on research that was reviewed for accuracy and quality by experts? If you prefer the latter, you may choose to consult with a registered dietitian.

RDs provide care by applying the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetic’s Evidenced-based practice guidelines. The guidelines are developed from research that has been reviewed and determined as strong and solid.

Several guidelines have been developed based on a particular disease or condition. RDs apply these guidelines along with professional judgment to achieve optimum care and positive nutrition and health outcomes.

RDs provide Medical Nutrition Therapy services for prevention, wellness and disease management. Nutrition services provided by RDs can improve a consumer’s health and increase productivity and satisfaction levels through decreased doctor visits, hospitalizations and reduced prescription drug coverage.
