WHO Growth Chart Training Program – Dietitians of Canada – online learning course

“The WHO Growth Chart Training Program is an evidence-based, self-learning package designed for primary care and public health practitioners. It has been developed through a collaboration led by Dietitians of Canada and includes the Canadian Paediatric Society, the College of Family Physicians of Canada, Community Health Nurses of Canada, National Aboriginal Health Organization, Canadian Obesity Network and NutriSTEP®. Reviewer reference groups from each professional collaborating organization, as well as provincial/territorial representatives responsible for implementation of the WHO Growth Charts within their jurisdictions, helped to shape this training program.

THERE IS NO FEE for this program. Dietitians of Canada gratefully acknowledges funding for this project made possible through a contribution from the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC). The views expressed in the training package do not necessarily represent the views of PHAC.

There are 5 modules in the training package, each with the following features:

•An automated power point video with voice over instruction
•Evidence-based practice guidance
•Case scenarios and/or reflective practice questions to facilitate application of the module content to practice
•Pre-and post self-scoring knowledge evaluation
•Self-scoring “pop” quizzes throughout each module
•References and resources for further study
•A personal certificate of completion of each module
•Opportunity to provide feedback on the module
Each module takes approximately 45-60 minutes to complete at a time, place and pace convenient for you. While it is recommended that you use all of the training modules in sequence, the package is designed so that you can select those modules that you feel are most relevant to your learning needs.”

Module 1 – Introduction to the WHO Growth Charts
Module 2 – Monitoring Growth: Measurements and Calculations
Module 3 – Interpreting the WHO Growth Charts
