Commission on Dietetic Registration Joins Joint Accreditation

July 02, 2020

We are delighted to announce a new opportunity: jointly accredited providers now have the option of offering accredited continuing education activities and profession-specific credit for Registered Dietitians and Dietetic Technicians, Registered.

  • We’ve collaborated with the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) to expand Joint Accreditation, enabling you to award single profession or interprofessional continuing education (IPCE) credit to Registered Dietitians and Dietetic Technicians, Registered, without needing to attain separate program or activity accreditation through CDR.
  • If you are jointly accredited and your target audience includes Registered Dietitians and Dietetic Technicians, Registered, or you are interested in expanding your target audience to include those professions, we invite you to consider this new option. You can choose to add the ability to award CDR Continuing Professional Education Units (CPEU) for $1,500 per year.
  • Please note: There is no change to the accreditation or reaccreditation process. This new collaboration offers you more options, but there is no requirement to participate.

At our leadership summits and other educational events, we’ve discussed the importance of expanding the Joint Accreditation team to include more health professions. We developed the collaboration with our colleagues at CDR in response to your requests and because of our commitment to team-based education. Our goal is to increase the benefits you already receive from our unified accreditation process and to support your efforts to deliver high-quality, effective IPCE that improves team collaboration and patient care. We welcome your questions and feedback. Please contact us [email protected]
