** The intervention for the DNP project includes the implementation of the American Heart Association Diet and Lifestyle Recommendations using a Fitbit in the primary care clinic. The American Heart Association Diet and Lifestyle Recommendations focus on a healthy diet, knowing how many calories the patient should be eating and drinking to reduce body weight, and aiming for at least 150 minutes of moderate physical activity or 75 minutes of vigorous physical exercise, or an equivalent combination of both (Arnett et al., 2019). ***
Provide your instructor and student colleagues with an update on your implementation plans for your DNP Project. Share any successes, challenges, or barriers you experienced this week.
** Other possible challenges include users forgetting to enter their data into the tracking software and a lack of consistent mobile connectivity, which is why weekly reminders and frequent monitoring are essential. ***
