In this session RDNs will learn specific areas to elevate their role and build leadership skills necessary to navigate change management. Speakers will describe the importance of interprofessional collaboration and building alliances to achieve change and present information from a physician champion and RDN team member on the impact of the activity and elevated RDN role. Speakers will highlight areas such as blood pressure screening and teaching insulin injection where RDNs can grow their role. Two case studies will explore the expanded role of the RDN in both ordering privileges and feeding tube placement. During case studies, participants will get an overview of the processes, regulation and compliance hurdles, successes and challenges, and evaluations of the expanded RDN role.
