Australia and New Zealand

These have been developed in line with the Driver Themes of NNEdPro:  

 

Theme 1: Nutrition/hydration education and clinical/public health leadership training of medical, healthcare and research professionals

Key Themes in Medical Nutrition Education & Research

The ANZ NNEdPro Network is a collaboration of dietitians, doctors, academics, medical and health care educators, researchers students and professional associations in Australia and New Zealand. The aim of the Network is to strengthen the nutrition education and competence of medical and healthcare professionals in Australia and New Zealand through innovation in research, resource development and delivery.

There are three key tasks that the ANZ NNEdPro Network is currently undertaking:

Provide a collaborative space for medical nutrition education and research in Australia and New Zealand to highlight and share information about existing research

 

Identify gaps and opportunities in current research and facilitate teams to work to fill this gap

 

Provide services to Universities to enhance their medical nutrition education, including assistance with curriculum mapping, review of PBL cases and nutrition material that can be embedded into other content areas.
