When low risk participants are certified, they should be scheduled for group nutrition education sessions. The certifier should note this in the participant’s medical record at the time of the certification. On the day of the group session, enter a Y (yes) on the participant WIC encounter (received education today) and the correct PTBMIS procedure code.
GOAL SETTING A goal is a particular kind of decision – an action decision with a plan. To accomplish goals we need to believe that we have the ability to affect change. It helps to anticipate possible barriers, so these can be factored in for realistic success. The object of goal-setting is to be successful, and change in small steps that over time will be monumental. By affecting health behaviors, we’re hoping all our clients and their families live to be a hundred!
