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.
