On March 27th 2019, the NNEdPro Global Centre ran a workshop at The International Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare in Glasgow, where a soft launch of its first e-learning efforts was announced.
The aim of the E-learning package is to bring the world class teaching and innovation to a wider audience around the globe. A hard launch date of 14 May 2019 is anticipated. Members of the NNEdPro Global Centre for Nutrition and Health can receive a a discount on e-learning.
Venturing into e-learning is an exciting initiative for the NNEdPro centre which enables us to bring our 10 years of educational expertise online to an international audience who may not have previously had access to such resources.
The first foray into the world of online learning has been developed using some of the content from our Summer School in Applied Human Nutrition held at the University of Cambridge. (For a more immersive experience, sign-up to attend the Summer School in Applied Human Nutrition 2019).
An educational package based around the importance of nutrition in all aspects of healthcare
The e-learning package will contain comprehensive introductions to nutrition and disease prevention, nutritional screening assessment and addresses many of the nutritional issues that we face today from the management of fluids and electrolytes in acute care up to the more cutting-edge topics such as nutrigenetics and the influence of nutrition on cancer.
Importantly the package will be assessed both formatively and summative.
As the users watch the presentations, there will be multiple choice questions (MCQs) which will help to guide their learning and once they have completed the course, they will have the opportunity to take a formative assessment to earn a certificate of distinction, merit, competence or participation, depending on their final result.
