With the support of the Public Health Agency of Canada, Dietitians of Canada has created a new web-based course focusing on population and public health needs assessment. These resources will support university and practicum students, as well as dietetic interns and new public health practitioners in Canada to gain consistent entry-level knowledge and skills in public/population health nutrition.
The course is available in two formats:
A set of six evidence-based, interactive, self-paced, online modules available in either English or French.
As off-line power point presentations with an accompanying learner workbook, also available in English or French.
Both course formats centre on a real-life scenario in which newly registered dietitian, Marie, works with community stakeholders to develop the knowledge and skills to plan, conduct, synthesize, organize and prioritize the findings from a community nutrition needs assessment. By working along with Marie and completing the activities in the course, learners will gain basic entry-to-practice knowledge and skills.
