IPTN offers monthly webinars on a wide range of topics related to therapeutic nutrition. The webinars feature local, national, and international subject matter experts.

Now in its sixth year,  the interactive webinar series is an excellent way to share knowledge and emerging best practices with interested health care providers and with members of the growing IPTN Therapeutic Nutrition Community of Practice.

The webinars are coordinated and hosted by IPTN staff. The webinar speakers volunteer their time to deliver a 60-minute talk followed by a question-and-answer period. The webinar series is shaped by a Scientific Advisory Committee and accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons.

There is no cost to attend, and past webinars are archived and accessible for members of IPTN's Therapeutic Nutrition Community of Practice. (Click the link to join the Community of Practice if not yet a member.)
