Targeted nutrition therapy aimed at reducing inflammation through diet is highly underutilized in the standard treatment of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). Therefore, the purpose of this directed project was to develop a nutrition curriculum for patients diagnosed with IBD. Specifically, the curriculum consists of five 30-minute PowerPoint presentations with corresponding lesson plans and topic-specific activities and provides specific nutrition recommendations for reducing inflammation and maintaining remission of IBD.
An expert panel comprised of two registered dietitians and a patient with IBD reviewed the curriculum using the Formative Evaluation Survey. Overall, average scores from the survey were positive, indicating that the curriculum is appropriate and provides valuable information for the intended audience. For future evaluation of this curriculum’s efficacy, a research project may be conducted that analyzes the effect of the curriculum nutrition recommendations on class participants’ disease status following implementation.
