NICUS in conjunction with ConsultUS (Pty) Ltd will once again be hosting its annual Continuing Nutrition Education (CNE) Programme for Dietitians and Nutritionists in 2020.

We will, however, only offer Option C (online articles) in 2020. This is due to the ICD 2020 Congress which is held in Cape Town this year. We would like to pledge our support to the Congress and encourage our loyal CNE attendees to attend the ICD Congress.

To ensure that you can still obtain all your CPD points through the CNE programme, we will offer two versions of Option C this year. Option C-1 consists of six articles that will have to be studied and questionnaires answered to obtain 18 CPD points (inclusive of 3 ethics CPD points). Option C-2 will consist of ten articles that will have to be studied and questionnaires answered to obtain 30 CPD points (inclusive of 6 ethics CPD points).

Dietitians and Nutritionists can register for Options C-1 or C-2. Depending on the option selected, a minimum of 18 or a maximum of 30 CPD points, including 3 or 6 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 2020 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 revised CNE Update 2020 format and that you will support us again in 2021 for the usual residential option.
