Feedback Requested on Draft Position Paper

Deadline: Friday, September 8, 2023

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is requesting member feedback on the draft of an upcoming Position Paper on adult weight management. A Position Paper includes a position statement and is based on systematic reviews with high, or at least moderate, quality evidence. Position papers are written on topics that are confusing and require clarification, are controversial, or are important from a policy perspective.

The current draft Position Paper on adult weight management is based on a systematic review examining the effect of nutrition behavior interventions provided by registered dietitian nutritionists for adults with overweight or obesity. The draft Position Paper is also based on an evidence-based practice guideline that aims to provide recommendations for RDNs who deliver medical nutrition therapy behavioral interventions for adults with overweight and obesity to improve cardiometabolic outcomes, quality of life and weight outcomes, when appropriate for and desired by the client.

The full systematic review and evidence-based practice guideline are available on the Evidence Analysis Library website.

Member review of draft Position Papers is a crucial step in the development of Position Papers from the Academy. Member input will be carefully reviewed and considered before finalizing the Position Paper on adult weight management. Please review the draft manuscript and provide feedback via this survey by Friday, September 8, 2023.
