PEN® System achieves remarkable milestone with it's 200th Knowledge Pathway


  • The global PEN: Practice-based Evidence in Nutrition® knowledge translation system, which supports dietitians to position themselves as leaders in evidence-based practice has achieved a remarkable milestone with the launch of its 200th Knowledge Pathway, entitled "Outcomes of Dietitian Interventions". Now, more than ever, with dietitians being asked to demonstrate their effectiveness and the value of dietetic interventions, this new pathway offers the evidence to support those conversations. The questions address the effectiveness of dietary counselling in chronic disease, telephone nutrition counselling, educational approaches and more. The PEN Team will continue to expand this Knowledge Pathway as new, quality evidence emerges.

    If you are not a PEN subscriber, come take a look at what you are missing. The PEN system now strongly supports dietitians around the world.  With timely and authoritative guidance on food and nutrition, PEN offers evidence-based answers to the questions encountered in every day practice in an easy to use format for both quick answers or in-depth reviews.
