The purpose of this study was to develop an education-based curriculum comprised of three sessions, 1 hour each, to educate Registered Dietitians and Dietetic Interns about vegetarian eating patterns and the benefits of soy in vegetarian diets. Specific objectives of the study were: (a) To review the literature and depth of the problem, (b) To review existing similar curriculum, (c) To develop an education-based curriculum to educate RDs and DIs about vegetarianism and soy, and (d) To develop tools to measure learner comprehension of the information presented in the curriculum.
The nutrition curriculum was developed to help RDs and DIs understand vegetarianism and benefits of soy in a vegetarian eating pattern. An expert panel reviewed the curriculum and modifications were made based on their suggestions. PowerPoint slides, discussions and handouts were used to educate 12 DIs. An increase in knowledge and positive comments occurred.
The curriculum will help RDs and DIs educate their vegetarian clients in an evidence-based manner.
