Number of members:
Goals of SIG:
- A potential “nutrition toolkit” may be a goal for this SIG—a compilation of ways a clinic could bring nutrition education to its patients.
- Participants will gather handouts, demonstrations, and other materials, and post them online so that pain clinicians can easily provide point-of-care resources
- This group discussed how to make nutrition interventions in the pain clinic feasible, especially when access and coverage may not be ideal.
- Participants noted several novel programs, including the use of subsidized farmers’ markets, educational “field trips” to supermarkets, and an anti-inflammatory diet cooking class.
