I am requesting any information regarding RDs doing home visits in Public
Health Nutrition, especially in the area of Maternal & Child Health. Our
state WIC program is continually being encouraged to integrate services
with our home visiting MCH program (called Family Case Management in
our state). This leaves our few nutrition professionals we have left in
our programs feeling the crush by administrators' use of other health
professionals (RN's) to do everything, including nutrition assessment &
education. We would like to build the case for using RDs & nutritionists
and would appreciate any experiences you may have or had. In
addition, if you have any staffing requirements for nutrition professionals
in your MCH programs, I would appreciate that information as well.
Thank you in advance for your response.
