CC and Jurisprudence FAQ
If you wish to carry over points, you must remember to report them only ONCE. For example, if you participate in professional development activity in June 2020, you may report that activity on your Continuing Competence submission in January 2021, or you may NOT report it at the time and “carry over” the points from that activity on report or report it on your Continuing Competence submission in January 2022.
Activities such as consulting with a colleague regarding a question, whether it be in person, by phone or by email, is part of providing appropriate nutritional care or ensuring optimal nutritional care for your individual clients. This is not professional development.
Preparing a presentation using materials and resources you have available to you that does not require any additional research on your part is not professional development.
Participating in activities such as general lifestyle/healthy living classes may be part of your personal development, but does not qualify as professional development.
It is not possible to list an inclusive list of activities that do or do not qualify. Use the Guidelines for Points Allocation as a guide. If you need clarification about the merit of a specific activity, contact the College, and your question can be directed to CDMs Professional Practice Coordinator.
