JURISPRUDENCE FAQ

Why do I need to understand jurisprudence?
Dietitians must understand the laws and standards that relate to their practice.  Increased awareness will help dietitians to practise within the boundaries of the law and ultimately lead to greater client safety.
Who is required to complete the jurisprudence learning module?
All Dietitians must complete any required jurisprudence learning modules as part of their continuing competence requirements for registration renewal.
When do I need to complete the module?
You must complete any required jurisprudence learning modules by January 31 in order to review your registration by March 31.
Will I need to complete the same modules each year?
Once a required module is completed, you won’t need to complete it unless it becomes required again.  For example, if a module undergoes significant updating it may become required again.
Will there be a new module each year?
The modules are developed in collaboration with other health regulators in Manitoba.  Additional learning modules are being developed.  The College will advise dietitians when additional modules must be completed.
How long does it take to complete the jurisprudence learning module?
The module will take approximately 1½ to 2 hours to complete.  There are links to external information and additional information that may increase the time required.
Can I complete the module on my phone?
The module is not optimized to view on a cell phone.  It is best viewed on a desktop, laptop or tablet.
Do I have to complete the module at one time?
No, you can pause the module and resume later, provided you are using the same device.  You will not be able to use different devices to complete the module.
Can I use different devices to complete the module? For example, if I start it at work and get called away, can I resume the module at home, where I left off?
You can stop the module and come back to it later, provided you are using the same device.  You will not be able to use different devices to complete the module.
Will I be tested on my knowledge?
There is a quiz at the end of the module with practice scenarios and questions requiring a response.  The rationale for each response is provided.  Your score will not be reported to the College
Can I re-do the module to get a better score?
You can re-do the module as many times as you like.  However, the College is only recording completion data.  Your score will not be reported to the College.
Do I need to submit the certificate of completion to the College?
You do not need to submit the certificate of completion, unless requested.  Please keep a screenshot or printed copy of the certificate of completion for your records.
