Course Overview and Target Audience:
This course will provide foundational and detailed information for the dietitian and other healthcare practitioners involved with bariatric patients. Topics will include: (1) Why the bariatric dietitian should be aware of the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (ASPEN)/Academy of Nutrition & Dietetic’s malnutrition criteria; (2) compensatory responses to weight loss responsible for weight regain with diet vs. surgery; (3) an in-depth analysis of the current evidence in micronutrient management after bariatric surgery; and (4) clinical correlations and confounders with laboratory assessment.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Recognize the role of the RD in documenting malnutrition using characteristics associated with severe and non-severe malnutrition in adult bariatric surgery patients.
- Discuss compensatory responses to weight loss that cause rapid and efficient weight regain with diet vs. surgery.
- Delineate the nutrition supplement of choice for bariatric patients.
- Discuss the clinical correlations and confounders of laboratory assessment.
