The intent of this session is to provide foundational knowledge on trans-inclusive dietetic practice and to have participants work with emerging resources and documents to contribute to the development of clinical practice guidelines and standards of practice. Listeners will learn about the application of the practice guidelines and concepts of inclusion, respect, dignity, and non-judgement in clinical, management, population health, education, and research settings.
After listening to this presentation, you will be able to:
