The purpose of this project was to develop a facility-specific dietary training program for diet technicians at Center for Discovery, a residential eating disorder treatment program. This dietary training program aimed to educate new diet technicians on how to effectively treat, communicate, and work with individuals with eating disorders.
The dietary training program consists of 10 lessons, each consisting of a lecture, discussion and activity component. Based on current research, this is the most effective lesson format when educating the adult population. Each lesson includes handouts for further reading and a pre- and post-program questionnaire to determine the effectiveness of the program.
An expert panel reviewed the program and provided feedback and recommendations for revisions. For the purpose of this project, the program was not pilot-tested but should be prior to its implementation.
