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 renew your registration by March 31.
Will there be a new module each year?
Additional learning modules are currently being developed.  The College will advise dietitians when additional modules must be completed.
How long does it take to complete the modules?
Each 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 the(se) module(s) be included in my Learning Plans?
If you have a learning goal related to the topic of the module, the module(s) could be included in your learning plans.  Keep in mind that the College recommends a minimum of three activities for each learning plan.  For clarity, a module CANNOT be the only activity in a learning plan.

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.
Can a group of dietitians complete the module(s) at the same time?

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 quiz is part of the learning process and includes the rationale for each response.  Your score will not be reported to the College
