dc.description.abstract The purpose of this research study was to examine the nature and scope of nutrition counseling and/or education available to cardiac patients and the role of the Registered Dietitian (RD) in Cardiac Rehab Phase II Programs. One hundred and fifty programs were surveyed in regards to their program and the programs elements in regards to nutrition topics. To our knowledge, this is the first study to systematically examine the nature and scope of nutrition counseling and/or education and the role of the Registered Dietitian in Cardiac Rehab Phase II Programs.The results indicated that almost 75% of the programs surveyed offered nutrition counseling and/or education, regardless of the region examined. Also the majority of the programs were identified to have a Registered Dietitian on staff, but less than half reported a Registered Dietitian employment as full-time. There were also significant differences in regards to nutrition education topics among the regions. The results also uncovered a discrepancy between the perceived importance of having a Registered Dietitian on staff and their role as the primary provider of nutrition counseling and/or education.
