Help Your Physician Get Nutrition Education at NutritionCME.org
Only 14 percent of physicians feel adequately trained to provide nutrition counseling, according to the Journal of American College of Nutrition. PCRM’s NutritionCME.org can help. The site offers free continuing education for health care professionals who want to use nutrition to promote good health and prevent disease.
The newly redesigned NutritionCME.org offers more than a dozen video and text courses available across six topic areas, including:
- Bone Health: Calcium, Vitamin D, Dairy Product Intake, and Bone Health: The Evidence
- Cancer: Evaluating Plant-Based Nutrition for Cancer Prevention and Survival
- Cardiovascular Disease: Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease
- Diabetes: A Plant-Based Dietary Intervention for Type 2 Diabetes
- General Nutrition: The Power of Sustainable Changes in Diet and Lifestyle
- Obesity: A Two-Year Randomized Weight Loss Trial Comparing a Vegan Diet to a More Moderate Low-Fat Diet
Credits are available for physicians, nurses, and registered dietitians and registered dietitian technicians.
The activities on NutritionCME.org have been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint sponsorship of The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, Office of Continuing Education in The Health Professions, and the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.
