NICUS in conjunction with ConsultUS (Pty) Ltd will once again be hosting its annual Continuing Nutrition Education (CNE) Programme for Dietitians and Nutritionists in 2019. This programme has become a highly successful annual event with almost 350 – 550 participants partaking annually.

In 2019 the residential option (Option A) will take place on 30 – 31 May 2019.

In addition, we are introducing a brand new post congress viewing option (Option B) that allows you to view the conference presentations in your own time up to 6 months after the event. CPD points will be obtained by completing online multiple answer questionnaires at the end of the lectures of each day. A pass rate of 70% is required and you can complete the questionnaires more than once until 70% is obtained. Log-in credentials will only be supplied to paid-up participants.

Option C consists of six 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 minimum of 30 CPD points, including a minimum of 5 units for ethics, 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 2019 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.

We trust that you will enjoy our CNE Update 2019 program.
