Part 1: Gender-Affirming Nutrition Care for Transgender and Gender Diverse Clients

Nutrition professionals can be key players in the healthcare team of their transgender or gender diverse clients. This webinar addresses key questions including: What does gender-affirming communication look like for nutrition professionals? What nutrition-related clinical considerations result from medically transitioning? How can nutrition professionals address the sex-specific aspects of nutrition assessment?

This webinar was presented live on June 8, 2022. The CPE associated with this webinar expires on May 31, 2024. This activity qualifies for the 1.0 ethics credit required by CDR.

Part 2: Strategies for RDNs to Manage Sex-Specific Data of Nutrition Assessment when Caring for Transgender and Gender Diverse Patients

Certain aspects of nutrition assessment are sex-specific, meaning they require RDNs to select a male or female sex. This presents a unique question for RDNs caring for transgender patients where sex and gender may differ. In this webinar, we identify the clinical data points within the eight domains of nutrition assessment that rely on biological sex, provide strategies for RDNS when caring for transgender and gender diverse patients, and illustrate the possible approaches with sample case studies.

This webinar was presented live on July 14, 2022. The CPE associated with this activity expires on May 31, 2024.
