Workshops

Each fall, the College delivers interactive educational workshops on a professional practice theme throughout Ontario.  Some sites having capability of video conferencing via the Ontario Telemedicine Network to broaden the workshop's reach. The College’s Practice Advisors and Policy Analysts facilitate the workshops in-person.

The workshops include case scenarios, College highlights and news from the Registration, Quality Assurance, Practice Advisory & Patient Relations Programs.

We encourage all dietitians and dietetic interns to attend the workshops where they can apply their knowledge and participate in discussions about case scenarios with their colleagues.

FALL 2019 WORKSHOP - Register Now

Applying a process of critical thinking, reflection and decision-making is the foundation of what it means to be professional. The 2019 Fall Workshop, Ethics and Professionalism: Knowing and Doing, will examine ethical dilemmas in various dietetic practice settings.

We will discuss:

  • What is a Code of Ethics and why we need it;
  • The relationship between ethics and professionalism;
  • How focusing on values is needed to reach excellence in dietetic practice and enable ethical, safe practice; and
  • What it means to make a promise to society, to accept the responsibility and maintain the trust we have as regulated professionals.
We encourage all dietitians and dietetic interns to attend this interactive workshop. Participants will learn from their peers and apply their knowledge as we analyze several case scenarios from a variety of professional practice settings.

Fall 2018 Workshop

The Fall 2018workshop series was titled: Record Keeping in Dietetic Practice – Facilitating Quality Healthcare. The workshop was based on the College’s Professional Practice Standards for Record Keeping, 2017. We thank all RDs and dietetic interns who attended.

The workshops focused on why record keeping is important to fulfill an RD’s professional obligations in dietetic practice. While the content focused on the requirements for individual client health records, the overarching principles and guidance for best practices surrounding record keeping  are transferable to all areas of dietetic practice.

If you did not have an opportunity to attend, you may download the workshop handouts.
