Here’s why you need INSPECT
Significance of NFPE Competence Assessment for Clinical RDNs and Dietetic Students
It is well-known that malnutrition is a problem for hospitalized patients and can cause negative outcomes. Registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) are experts in identifying and treating malnutrition.
RDNs use nutrition-focused physical exams (NFPE) as part of their nutrition assessments to diagnose malnutrition and other deficiencies. It is important to assess RDNs’ NFPE skills at patients’ bedside. Quality standards expect hospitals to assess staff competence annually.
The field of dietetics will adopt a competency-based education model in the near future, so clinical nutrition managers need tools to evaluate RDNs and dietetic students’ competence in all areas, including NFPEs.
NFPE Competency Tool
The First Interactive NFPE Competency Tool That Provides Instant Scoring
This is the first NFPE competency evaluation tool that provides instant scoring, developed with input from NFPE content and practice experts to ensure validity. It was tested in acute care settings with direct clinical observations by CNMs on RDNs’ NFPE performance.
It’s also the first interactive tool that can score RDNs’ NFPE performance using smart devices, providing instant information on completed and missed exam areas. INSPECT calculates scores for each exam subset, overall NFPE score, percentage, total points possible, and total items missed.
CNMs and dietetic educators can use the scores to identify frequently missed NFPE exam items and provide personalized feedback and learning experiences for each RDN.
