Nutrition-Focused Physical Exam: Resources for Every Clinician

Stay ahead of the curve

Performing a nutrition-focused physical exam (NFPE) is a great way to gain more information when assessing your patient or resident. Unfortunately, it is an underused technique, as many dietitians have never received training or don’t feel comfortable applying it in practice. We put together a list of NFPE resources that includes everything from formal training sessions to self-study. So whether you are a beginner or a seasoned pro, we invite you to peruse the list and incorporate NFPE into your daily assessments!
