Nutrition Support Blog: Updated Patient Education Materials Now Posted

Happy New Year to everyone!  We are gearing up for another dynamic year of Nutrition Support Training programs and activities here at UVA, and we hope to work with many of you in the upcoming year!

We are wrapping up a major 2014 project, which was to update all of our Patient Education Handouts.   Each of the handouts now has a new look (and of course the latest nutrition information), but the major improvement is easier, more patient-friendly language. Whereas before, many of the handouts were geared to practitioners and savvy patients, they are now free of jargon and will hopefully be accessible to a wide variety of users.  As always, the handouts cover a variety of topics, including disease-specific information, increasing calories, bone health, modified consistency, and more.

The Patient Education Handouts are available at www.GInutrition.virginia.edu.  Click on Patient Education Handouts (under Patient Resources near the middle of the page).   We hope you and your patients will find these resources valuable and helpful.
