Who is the course for?
This course is specifically for doctors and other healthcare professionals who are wanting to apply for membership of the International Academy of Nutrition Educators (IANE), and who have completed a minimum of two courses from the Using Food as Medicine in Healthcare Practice program and the Food as Medicine course.

What topics will you cover and what will you do?
This course does not present new content on food as medicine. Rather, this is a final assessment course.
Within this course you will demonstrate how you communicate nutrition and health information to patients by applying the knowledge you learnt in the Food as Medicine courses by producing video responses for two case studies (two videos in total). The purpose of the video response format is to further develop your communication and information technology skills, both of which are vitally important in professional settings.
It’s worth noting that the hours per week listed for this course reflect the preparation and production effort required for each case study submission.
Once you have successfully completed and upgraded this course you will be issued with a digital Monash NNedPro IANE pathway certificate by FutureLearn. This provides you with the opportunity to apply for IANE membership.
