2020 FNCE: Healthy Midlife and Menopause: Finding Appropriate Nutritional and Behavioral Health Interventions
Academy Center for Professional Development
Recorded pre-approved CPE Activity: 175 Lectures/Webinars
Hot flashes, insomnia and mood swings are some of the symptoms women experience during the menopause transition. However, in today’s anti-aging and nutritionally sensationalized world, the pressure and distress of weight and body changes, often when a woman’s identity and life itself are changing, can pave the path for the development of pathological eating problems and other health consequences. Registered dietitian nutritionists are often the first point of contact for women concerned about menopause and midlife weight gain. Understanding the complex web of aging, fluctuating hormones and diet cycling on a woman’s body can be helpful for RDNs to differentiate between what is pathological and what is normal, and help women make informed decisions to improve their overall health. This session will focus on medical nutrition therapy and behavioral health intervention strategies for dietitians to understand the importance of collaboration with a multidisciplinary healthcare team. The presenters will help RDNs translate research from the fields of menopause, weight management and eating disorders into practical and realistic nutrition and lifestyle interventions to help women manage symptoms, resolve their distress, and improve health outcomes in midlife and beyond.
