Nutritional genomics is a rapidly evolving field with the potential to improve precision of nutrition care based on an individual's genotype. When considering if and how this technology should be applied in practice, RDNs require evidence that utilizing this strategy improves nutrition-related outcomes in patients and clients. To date, no systematic reviews have provided guidance for incorporating genetic information into the Nutrition Care Process. This session will describe the current landscape of nutritional genomics in nutrition practice, including potential benefits and harms. Speakers will describe results from a systematic review conducted by the Academy's Evidence Analysis Center examining the effect of using genotype to guide nutrition counseling and care on patient and client outcomes. Finally, speakers will describe nutrition practice scenarios involving nutritional genomics and discuss potential evidence-based approaches to addressing a patient or client's individual needs.
