Evidence-based Practice & NSDA’s New Position Statement on the Sale of Nutrition Products

Evidence-based practice is an aspect of practice that may differentiate dietitians from other nutrition practitioners. Public trust and the integrity of the profession are influenced by this fundamental aspect of dietetic practice. NSDA’s new position statement on the sale, endorsement and recommendation of products states that clear evidence is a key consideration. This session provides an overview of the position statement and how to determine if there is sufficient quality evidence-based research to support the recommendation, sale or endorsement of a product.  Speakers: Dr. Theresa Glanville, professor at Mount Saint Vincent University and Kelley Hiltz-Cameron, owner of Core Nutrition
