The Division of Human Nutrition at Stellenbosch University will once again be hosting its annual Continuing Nutrition Education (CNE) Programme for Dietitians and Nutritionists in 2017. This programme has become a highly successful annual event with almost 450 participants partaking in 2016.
We are very excited about the growth of the programme, which has been offering 3 options since 2011. In 2017 the residential option (Option A) will take place on 28 and 29 June 2017. In addition, to make the programme accessible to those not able to attend the full 2 days of the residential option, we will make the full offering of PowerPoint slides available electronically (Option B). To earn the full number of CPD points, participants will have to study the slides in their own time and answer relevant questionnaires. Option C consists of 10 articles that will have to be studied and questionnaires answered to obtain additional CPD points.
Dietitians and Nutritionists can register for Options A, B or C individually, or the combination of A and C or B and C can be selected. Depending on the option selected, a total of up to 31 CPD points, including 10 ethics points, can be earned.
Each practitioner is responsible for maintaining his/her own Individual Activity Report (Form IAR1) until such time as his/her name is drawn for a compliance audit (Click here to download the portfolio form). CNE update 2017 will issue a CPD Certificate to participants who successfully complete the programme, and will keep record of each participant’s units earned for a period of three years after the date that the certificate was issued.
Some documents (extension .pdf) on the CNE Update platform require the use of Adobe Acrobat Reader. If you do not have it installed, you will need to download and install their free PDF viewer. Note that the reason for using the PDF format is that it results in smaller files and therefore faster downloads.
