Nutrition for Children with Special Health Care Needs

The Pacific West MCH Distance Learning Network was developed in response to the identified training needs of maternal and child health practitioners providing nutrition services in the Pacific West Cluster and to the MCHB continuing education program priority established in maternal and child nutrition.

The overall goal of the project is to develop a distance-learning network among MCHB-sponsored training programs and state Title V agencies to strengthen nutrition services for children with special health care needs and their families in Regions VII, IX and X, including Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.

This series of six self-study modules is a product of the Pacific West MCH Distance Learning Network. Much of the material was previously presented at in-person training sessions and is also available as a CD-ROM with resource notebook.

Each module has been approved for 1 contact hour from the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) of the American Dietetic Association. To receive continuing education credit, you must complete the pre-test and successfully answer 75% of the post test questions. Instructions for printing a certificate of completion and/or for requesting a report to CDR will be provided after the post test is completed.
