Building a united healthcare team, with nurses on the frontlines of care, can help bridge the gap in the nutritional care management of patients. Health professionals are beginning to recognize the need and opportunities for collaboration and integration of clinical care and community systems to prevent and mitigate obesity and other nutrition-related disease states. This workshop is designed as an inter-disciplinary program to educate the target audience of Nurse Practitioners. This program will address the benefits of working inter-professionally with Registered Dietitian-Nutritionists (RDN) and NPs to address obesity and other nutrition-related disease states to achieve results that cannot be achieved by a single health professional. This approach addresses the education gap of nutrition management that integrates partners in evidence-based health care delivery. 5.5 contact awards will be awarded to NPs who attend the full program.
1. Review the epidemiology and current state of the obesity epidemic.
2. Discuss strategies to minimize bias towards and discrimination against people with obesity.
3. Explain the skills and competencies of other health professionals – i.e., dietitians – necessary for effective inter-professional collaboration and integration of clinical and community care for obesity and other nutrition-related disease states.

This conference will provide an overview of the growing and compelling evidence base for Type 2 diabetes prevention or delay, update practitioners on the latest medications, diet and lifestyle modifications, including physical activity, that form a sound strategy for reversing the alarming trends in prediabetes and Type 2 diabetes prevalence. In addition, guided by experts in the field, practitioners will participate in interactive case studies to hone their skills in diabetes prevention and will hear from a panel of successful weight loss maintainers about their individual journeys and secrets to losing and maintaining a healthier weight, while achieving long term reductions in HgA1c. To leverage these prevention strategies in clinical practice and communities, a review of the National Diabetes Prevention Program research, CDC recognition standards and reimbursement landscape, the brand new Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program (MDPP) launch and requirements will also be discussed. Opportunities for DSMES programs and diabetes educators to house their own DPP program will be presented, along with ample resources and support.
