Evaluation nutrition plan of care2

Evaluation Nutrition Plan of Care:

Impacts of materials:

The education on DASH might have been overwhelming at first, since she had no nutrition background. The cookbook education might have been drawn-out and redundant for her.

How would I change materials:

I would have made a different eating guide for the DASH eating plan. I would now have allowed more time for education on DASH.

Would I use fewer?:

I would focus more on her understanding, and use constant evaluation throughout the education.

Was the health literacy accurate for client?: Yes

Future nutritional needs

Future Nutritional needs

  • She needs a continuous accountability partner to help keep her on track.

  • She needs more practice with portion control.

  • She needs further education and practice with the DASH eating plan.

    • Maybe a more in depth explanation on physiological changes associated with the DASH eating plan.


Overall summary of my effectiveness

Overall Summary of My effectiveness

What did I learn about myself as a counselor:

I became more confident in my knowledge as a future dietitian. With some work on my weaknesses, I discovered I have the potential to become a great nutrition counselor.

I feel more prepared to answer nutrition-related questions off the top of my head

What did I learn about educational preparations:

The preparations are what make you a good counselor, because it shows exactly what you will be presenting to the client. They are vital

Recommendations to future counselors:

The process does not happen in one day (it is a journey!), and that it takes time and effort to make things happen and change. Four sessions may not be enough, so don’t worry if things don’t work out the way you hoped.

Be prepared to set some time aside for your client, they deserve your full attention.


Thank you

THANK YOU!
