Assuring Pediatric Nutrition in the Hospital and Community

This annual 3-day course in Seattle, WA is for registered dietitians who see pediatric clients in their practices, but who have not had recent training in pediatric nutrition. It is based on a core curriculum, with emphasis on decision-making and evidence-based practice. Participants are included in the on-going Pediatric Nutrition Consultation On-Line listserve after completing the course.
This training is an excellent addition to the RD's Professional Development Portfolio and can be used to help document the dietitian's competencies with children of different ages as required by JCAHO.  Registration is limited to 30 participants to keep the training interactive.
