Explore the impressive effects of whole-food, plant-based nutrition in cardiac and primary care, and learn ways physicians and dietitians can work together to optimize patient outcomes. 

The Learning Process:

Participants are expected to watch the video, reflect on its content, and complete the CME self-assessment and CME evaluation. Only upon completing this process will a participant's continuing education certificate be generated. The estimated time a learner will need to complete this self-study activity is 1 hour.

This activity is approved for continuing education for physicians, nurses, and dietitians. 

The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences designates this enduring activity for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Objectives:

  • Describe how a whole food plant-based nutrition program can show improvement in patient lab results, biometrics, and satisfaction. 
  • Describe the effects of a nutritional intervention on the pathophysiologic mechanisms of cardiovascular disease.
  • Identify the main functions of a registered dietitian in outpatient practice.

  • List ways to physicians and dietitians can work together to optimize patient outcomes.

Requirements for successful completion: Participants will be awarded contact hours commensurate with participation after completion of the post-test with a score of 70% or higher.
