Community of Practice
Like any new and emerging field, it is important for therapeutic nutrition to be grounded in a community of practice.
Since IPTN launched in 2016, our Therapeutic Nutrition Community of Practice has grown to more than 2,200 members who gather online for webinars, ask clinical questions of each other, share research findings and resources, and propose best practices.
A moderated digital platform for health professionals, researchers and educators, this online Community of Practice is a space for healthcare professionals to learn, share, collaborate and network with colleagues from around the world. There is no cost to become a member.
