The purpose of this directed project was to develop an educational curriculum for registered dietitians to teach obese patients the nutrition approach to stress management. Specific topics included the effects of stress on the human brain and body, recommended foods and nutrients, coping skills, and alternative methods to stress management besides eating. This educational curriculum will be used as a continuing education workshop for registered dietitians.
Current research and past curricula were reviewed to include current, relevant, and practical information related to these topics. The activities and handouts provide additional opportunities for the registered dietitians to effectively apply what they learn during the workshop.
An expert panel evaluated the educational curriculum and workshop assessment tools will be used for its continued improvement. The continuing education workshop was not pilot-tested, however it would be constructive to do so before it is implemented.
