  • Digital Learning: A Survey of Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Attitudes
           and Utilization of YouTube for Nutrition Education

      Authors: Chan; Lauren; Brody, Rebecca; Dobak, Stephanie; Peterson, Sarah
      Abstract: imageNutrition and dietetics education content is uncommon on online platforms. This cross-sectional study evaluated learning preferences and YouTube usage for nutrition education via a Web-based survey of 185 members of Dietitians in Nutrition Support. In-person learning (43%) and video (33%) were preferred learning modalities. Age (P = .008) and practice years (P = .02) were significantly different between modality preference. More than one-half of respondents have used and recommended a video for nutrition education. Top barriers for using educational videos were lack of relevant content and challenges identifying valid resources. Nutrition organizations should prioritize building relevant, evidenced-based video content for education.

  • Preceptors' Knowledge, Skills, and Attitudes Toward Precepting Dietetic
           Interns and Training Perceptions: A Mixed-Methods Research Study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Benoit; Teresa; Montes, Alina; Shreim, Somir; Andrade, Jeanette M.
      Abstract: imageDietetic preceptors play a critical role in educating and mentoring future registered dietitian nutritionists throughout the internship. A mixed-methods research study was conducted from September to October 2019 to examine US dietetic preceptors' knowledge, skills, and attitudes (KSAs) toward precepting and training. Of the 141 participants who completed the quantitative survey, their KSAs were high (4.5/5). From the qualitative feedback, preceptors (n = 15) expressed the need for further training in the areas of communication, teaching, and evaluation and preferred training online or through webinars. This provides an opportunity for developing tailored training materials to support preceptors as they educate future dietitians.

  • Trends Related to Evidence-Based Dietetic Practice Among Dietitians With
           Varying Levels of Education and Experience

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Van Horn; Leslie Thompson; Wright, Lauri
      Abstract: imageThis qualitative study evaluates registered dietitian nutritionists' (RDNs) use of evidence-based dietetic practices (EBDPs) by education level and years of experience. Interviews were conducted with bachelor's and master's-trained RDNs (n = 9). The following themes regarding EBDP were identified: (1) resources utilized, (2) personal utilization and perceptions, (3) barriers and areas for improvement, and (4) collaboration. It was noted that master's-trained RDNs were more knowledgeable regarding EBDP resources. While it was reported that EBDP had improved with experience, those further from their didactic training had less awareness of EBDP resources. Continuing education should aim to bridge this gap in knowledge among RDNs.

  • A Content Validation Pilot Study of Prevalent Nutrition Diagnoses by Acute
           Care Clinical Registered Dietitian Nutritionists

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Hakel-Smith; Nancy; Ritter-Gooder, Paula K.
      Abstract: imageThe purpose of this descriptive research design study among clinical registered dietitian nutritionists (CRDNs) (n = 7) was to identify frequently used nutrition diagnoses (NDs) in acute care practice and validate the defining characteristics for the prevalent NDs. Data were collected with 2 instruments and analyzed using descriptive statistics. CRDNs identified 19 of 84 NDs as prevalent. Content validation resulted in 24% (n = 64) of the characteristics as critical, with an average of 3.6 critical characteristics for each ND. This pilot study limits generalization of the findings but contributes important information about the descriptive diagnoses in this area of practice.

  • Is There a Correlation Between NRS-2002 and EAT-10 Score'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Garipoğlu; Gökçen; Andaç Öztürk, Serap; Bursa, Ayşe Gül
      Abstract: imageDysphagia may play a significant role in the development and progression of malnutrition and may lead to prolonged hospital stay. A group of 187 patients was screened with the NRS-2002 to evaluate nutritional status and the EAT-10 for dysphagia screening. A statistically significant correlation was found between the EAT-10 and NRS scores at hospitalization (initial NRS score) and the final NRS score (P = .014 and P = .007, respectively). To prevent or minimize the adverse outcomes of dysphagia and malnutrition, it is necessary to perform routine dysphagia and malnutrition screening in hospitals.

  • Adaptation Study of the Newest Vital Sign on Adolescents With Type 1
           Diabetes and Healthy Adolescents in Turkish

      Authors: Bayındır Gümüş; Aylin; Keser, Alev; Şıklar, Zeynep; Berberoğlu, Merih
      Abstract: imageThe current study aimed to establish validity and reliability of the Newest Vital Sign (NVS) in 255 Turkish adolescents aged 11 to 18 years with and without type 1 diabetes and evaluate their health literacy with age, gender, and health status. The t values of items in the NVS were found to be statistically significant and the calculated Cronbach's α coefficient value indicated that the reliability is at a medium level; 7.5%, 42%, and 56.5% of adolescents had respectively inadequate, limited, and adequate health literacy. There is a negative relationship between the health literacy of adolescents with diabetes and their HbA1c (P < .05). This study confirms that the NVS is a valid and reliable tool for Turkish adolescents.

  • Bowel Dysfunction and Enteral Nutrition in Critically Ill Adult Patients:
           A Retrospective, Observational Study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Blakeslee; Paul A.; Hyrkäs, Eira Kristiina; Corica, Erin; Orff, Sonja; Trottier, Alana; Turner, Elizabeth
      Abstract: imageThis retrospective study investigated diarrhea, constipation, associations of enteral nutrition (EN), and medications in critically ill patients (n = 4118). Data were retrieved from electronic health records. Over half (68%) of patients had diarrhea and 8% had constipation. Diarrhea and constipation were more common in patients in the EN group (n = 799) than in the no-EN group (n = 802). Interestingly, patients who received EN were administered more medications with lower incidence of diarrhea than patients who did not receive EN. The findings of this study highlight the importance of reviewing medications (ie, opioids, prophylactic laxative regimens, and antibiotics) as well as formula composition for potential contributing etiologies to bowel movement abnormalities in critically ill patients.

  • Mortality and Length of Stay in Critically Ill Patients With Low Muscle
           Mass: A Review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Wedemire; Courtney; Rigassio Radler, Diane; Zelig, Rena
      Abstract: imageIn critical care, low muscle mass is proposed as a risk factor for adverse outcomes that may be modified by nutrition. However, health care providers, including physicians and registered dietitians, may not routinely consider this risk factor in screening, assessing, or designing interventions. A literature search was conducted to compare clinical outcomes in critically ill adult patients with and without low muscle mass upon admission. This narrative review identified a statistically significant association between low muscle mass and increased risk of mortality and length of stay. Health care providers should consider screening for low muscle mass upon admission, as this may inform practice and improve clinical outcomes.
