International Academy of Nutrition Educators

The International Academy of Nutrition Educators (IANE) draws from over a decade of experience in developing and delivering high quality nutrition education and evaluating its impact, particularly on healthcare practices.

 

The IANE utilises the NNEdPro Global Innovation Panel (GIP) with its international hubs and unique approach of combining knowledge in technical aspects of Nutrition and Health. The IANE also utilises bespoke training in Change Management and Leadership as well as Research and Evaluation Methods.

 

Knowledge exchange within the Nutrition community, faculty development and the provision of mentoring support in the form of academy membership for trainers and trainees are niche value added features.

 

Work underpinning the IANE has been consistently recognised through numerous awards over the years, including a joint prize from the Nutrition Society and British Association for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (2010), the Complete Nutrition Outstanding Achievement Award (2015) and the Medical Nutrition International Industry Award in conjunction with the European Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (2017).
