  • December 5: "Clinical Ladders: Different Approaches for Career Growth and Advancing Professional Skills"
    Successful health-care organizations work to achieve strategic goals and advanced clinical practice. Clinical ladders can contribute to that achievement if they are aligned with the professional, individual goals of their clinical staff. Let two clinical RDs guide you through the process of establishing a clinical ladder program at your institution and help you achieve more as an individual practitioner using a clinical ladder, whether it be department or multidiscipline-focused. This webinar will benefit both staff and management in their roles within a health-care institution.

  • January 31, 2013: "Gestational Diabetes: Moving from Evidence-Based Guidelines to Practical Application"
    Gestational diabetes mellitus is one of the most common complications of pregnancy in the United States. Controversy exists regarding GDM screening and diagnosis; however, medical nutrition therapy, glucose monitoring, physical activity and, if necessary, medication are the most accepted management strategies. Other important issues in GDM include weight management, food safety and cultural considerations. This webinar will discuss the definition, diagnosis and management of GDM and the Academy’s evidence-based GDM nutrition practice guideline. Through the use of case studies, participants will learn how to incorporate the Nutrition Care Process into various practice settings.

Each webinar will last from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Central Time.
