Advanced Nutrition Assessment

This graduate level course will expand upon the nutritional assessment skills of dietetics students to enable them to perform a complete client assessment. Students will learn to assess lifestyle habits, health risks, dietary intake, biometric measurements, and results of blood, stool, saliva and urine laboratory tests. Students will integrate assessment data into a comprehensive analysis and recommendation report for a client. Client confidentiality, data management and follow-up nutrition counseling skills will also be addressed.
