How we should we address diet with our patients-socio-economic forces

In the unit on Nutrition, Obesity, diet and Food Access, the various assigned materials approach the content from different angles. The following questions will be the basis of a short reflection essay.

1. How we should we address diet with our patients (giving advice vs. a motivational interviewing approach vs. a combo vs. other? Your thoughts.)

2. What are socio-economic forces, policies and health disparities related to diet and food access?
In a short paper (minimum of 3 paragraphs, but doesn’t need to be much longer than 3 paragraphs), comment on the above questions with something that struck you from the assigned materials. You can also relate it to your experience with patients or your experience as a patient. However, use the assigned materials and documentary as a basis for your discussion. Did something surprise you or was new information for you? Is there something you agree or disagree with?
Be sure to appropriately site any sources using APA. Finally,  I do not expect you to do research or include anything outside of the assigned readings.

Nurses have the expertise and responsibility to ensure that patients and clients’ nutritional needs are met.

Non-communicable diseases are often associated with modifiable risk factors.
