Jo Anne L., A., Sandra, B., Courtney, J., Marlene, C., Frances, B., Johane P., A., & Gary E., N. (2005). Education by a dietitian in patients with heart failure results in improved adherence with a sodium-restricted diet: A randomized trial. American Heart Journal , (4), 716e1.

Effective interaction between nutritional medical treatment and patients can help increase patient’s adherence to diets. This study conducted a qualitative research that utilized focus group of two types of patients, one group saw a dietitian only one time and the other group attended at least three appointments. For those patients who only saw the dietitian once they ended up getting discouraged and did not adhere to the diet plan. For those patients who saw the dietitian more than 3 times had better adherence to the diet because they were able to check in, ask questions, and improve their adherence. The only recommendations the patients stated were to have more of an individualized diet plan per person. In order to change a patient eating pattern the dietitians must adopt a more therapeutic approach and relate to the patients cultural needs to achieve sustainable results. This supports the question being asked because one meeting with a dietitian is not enough, it is important to have at least bimonthly meetings to be able to check in and ask those questions and be held accountable.

The goal of this study was to determine the effectiveness of additional diet education by a dietitian on the control of hyperphosphatemia in dialysis patients. The researchers conducted a study over an eight-month period where group A contained 31 patients where given the routine dietetic education and group B 30 patients received the routine education plus education by a dietitian. The outcome of the study was to improve the patient’s serum Phosphate levels. The results showed that the phosphate levels in group B where lower than those in group A long term. This supports the question being asked because these patients are watched over an 8 month period with a dietitian and are able to more closely follow their diet and repetition of this leads to better adherence.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
