444. Exercise Professionals + Registered Dietitians = A Winning Combination

Sunday, October 21
8:00 AM - 9:30 AM
CE: 1.5

Session Level 2 - Intermediate

Registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) must be aware that certified exercise professionals (CEPs) are providing nutrition information to their clients that can, at times, fall outside of their scope of practice (SOP) or emerge from non-science-based sources, such as colleagues or social media. Additionally, because exercise is a vital component of overall health and weight management, RDNs may feel obligated to provide exercise guidance to their clients even though this may fall outside their SOP. While many RDNs and CEPs understand what falls clearly within their SOP, some are walking a thin line and others aren’t sure where the line is drawn. The goal of this session is to establish a dialogue between RDNs and CEPs on how better to collaborate, leverage our unique and complementary skill sets, and develop systems and/or partnerships that ultimately support improving our clients’ health while helping them reach their fitness goals.
