Join The Canadian Clinicians for Therapeutic Nutrition

Are you a Canadian health professional who wishes to join a dynamic, forward-thinking organization using the most up to date science to tackle nutritional diseases?

By joining our CCTN community, you will have the opportunity to connect with other physicians and health professionals using therapeutic nutrition through our online networking platform.

We aim to support our members in their independent education on the use of nutrition in disease. We use nutritional interventions for a broad range of diseases, including diabetes, obesity, PCOS, NAFLD, among others.

The CCTN is a completely independent health advocacy group, free of industry funding and/or any financial gain. Membership in the CCTN is free.

Benefits of Becoming a Member of the CCTN

  • Liase with a large therapeutic nutrition community to share resources and evidence, address common challenges in therapeutic nutrition, engage in research, and partake in advocacy efforts.
  • As a member of the CCTN, you will receive a discounted admission to our future therapeutic nutrition conferences to be run by the CCTN.
  • Receive monthly newsletters (to start at a date in the near future).
  • Stay apprised of the actions of the CCTN.

Collaboration with the IPTN

We have formed a collaboration with the IPTN (Institute for Personalized Therapeutic Nutrition), a not-for-profit multidisciplinary collaboration between researchers, academics, physicians, pharmacists and allied health professionals, to advance the idea of personalized, therapeutic nutrition and foster a ‘food first’ culture in Canada for treating chronic diseases.

We are helping the IPTN create and promote learning opportunities such as scientific conferences, educational webinars and training programs for health professionals. Many CCTN members act on an expert advisory committee, providing medical and academic oversight of training content and delivery methods. The IPTN is also helping to build the scientific knowledge base for therapeutic nutrition by conducting collaborative, multidisciplinary research.

To provide health professionals the opportunity to collaborate with Canadian and International therapeutic nutrition practitioners, the IPTN has secured membership in a community management platform. This powerful networking platform has several distinct advantages:

  • better security than many current social media platforms
  • improved administrative tools and better ability to manage the group members
  • similar interface and feed as facebook, making an easier transition
  • ability to be notified of new posts and reply directly to posts through email (this can be customized)
