2020 Webcast: When Can You Trust the Experts? Evaluating Nutrition Information

Date: August 12, 2020

Speaker: Karen Collins, MS, RDN, CDN, FAND and Joel W. Hughes, PhD,  FAACVPR

When can you trust the experts? Nutrition research varies in type, quality, and source. Dietary advice and nutrition education is a key feature of cardiopulmonary rehabilitation. Cardiopulmonary rehabilitation staff, including registered dietitians (RD’s), need to critically evaluate the claims made in the media, by the research literature, and by the experts. Understanding strengths and limitations of research (and media) claims, as well as identifying potential sources of bias, will sharpen the critical thinking skills of all cardiopulmonary rehabilitation staff. Join Karen Collins and Joel Hughes for an entertaining discussion of when to trust the experts..

Learning Objectives
  1. Describe common sources of potential bias related to nutrition research and how it is communicated.
  2. Explain how to critically evaluate sources of information about nutrition (e.g., publications, statements, media reports) considering the strengths, limitations, and relevance to the CR/PR patient population.
  3. Create nutrition-related messages and answer patient questions on nutrition with greater accuracy and balance, demonstrating for patients how to be critical consumers of nutrition news.
