Practice-based Evidence in Nutrition (PEN)

PEN image

There are many areas a dietitian is expected to know about; from diabetes and intolerances to kidney disease and weight management. But, maintaining an accurate overview of the evidence-base in all general and specialised areas of dietetic practice can be a challenge. The PEN system keeps you up-to-date with the fast-paced world of dietetics! 

What is PEN?

The PEN system was developed 'by dietitians for dietitians'. It condenses and summarises the nutrition and dietetic evidence-base on more than 190 nutrition and dietetic-related topics. It then gives you practical guidance to help apply to dietetic practice!


PEN is included as part of BDA membership, so why not log in to start using the fantastic PEN system today and throughout your dietetic career?
