Lunch and learn: CPD-accredited seminars designed for healthcare professionals
In a drive to help healthcare professionals with their continued professional development (CPD), Nutricia has created a set of new CPD-accredited educational presentations, written by independent experts. These are the latest addition to our suite of resources designed to facilitate more informed conversations with mums-to-be and parents, and support assessment and management of common infant feeding concerns during the first 1,000 days.
Emma Callan, Community Account Manager within Nutricia's Solutions team, explains: “Working within a constantly evolving NHS brings many challenges to our healthcare professionals (HCPs) and can also mean that time is becoming an increasingly precious and scarce resource, leading to many HCPs having to achieve their learning credits in their own free time.”
Emma continues: “With these Lunch and Learn presentations, Nutricia can provide a flexible learning platform where GPs can gain practical insights with CPD-accredited learning during their working day. Providing our HCPs with practical education such as stepped approaches and red flags means they can help ensure parents with young children receive the best support and right advice no matter where they are on their patient journey.”
These CPD-accredited presentations can be delivered to any number of people, at any time and at any place. Our goal is to provide inspiring Lunch and Learn nutrition training that will help busy HCPs further their knowledge base, in and out of surgery hours.
There will be three Lunch and Learn presentations available in summer 2018. Each presentation begins with nutrition within the first 1,000 days and every presentation has been created by an expert in the relevant field, from Nutricia’s steering committee. This committee is formed of a group of seven leading healthcare professionals from different disciplines, and has been put together to ensure that the education we are delivering is as relevant and useful as possible. Within the 30 minute presentations there will be educational slides, informative videos and case studies to help HCPs support parents.
