As a Registered Nutritionist, keeping up to date with the latest research is imperative to my practise. My advice and recommendations are always evidence-based to protect and benefit the public. CPD (Continuing Professional Development) is important for professionals to stay updated with relevant training, information, skills and knowledge to remain competent throughout their career journey. One way you can continue to learn is to attend conferences, which is what I did last week.
I visited the Food Matters Live 3-day (17-19 November) conference at London's Excel Centre; it provided a great opportunity to learn, network with other nutrition and health professionals, and to sample new and innovative food products coming to the market. The conference was free to attend and therefore I encourage anyone interested in food, nutrition and health to go next year.
