The Learning Process:
Participants are expected to read the module, reflect on its content, and complete the CME self-assessment and CME evaluation. Only upon completing this process will a participant's continuing education certificate be generated. The estimated time a learner will need to complete this self-study activity is 1 hour.
After completion of this web cast, participants should be able to:
1.Describe the role of specific dietary interventions in people with diabetes.
2.Describe secondary health benefits of a plant-based diet.
3.Outline practical strategies for prescribing diet changes.
4.Access practical resources for busy clinicians.
The George Washington University Medical Center has implemented a process where everyone who is in a position to control the content of an education activity has disclosed all relevant financial relationships with any commercial interest. Potential conflicts of interest were resolved and documented by one or more of the following methods:
1.Altering the individual's financial relationships,
2.Altering the individual's control over content or
3.Conducting an independent validation of the individual's presentation content.
Individuals who refuse to or otherwise fail to disclose potential conflicts of interest to The George Washington University Medical Center are disqualified from participation in planning or implementing CME activities.
The planners/presenters of this module have no conflicts of interest to disclose.
