3rd May 2012: e-learning with the Early Nutrition Academy

The Early Nutrition eAcademy (ENeA) is an e-learning co-operation initiated by the Early Nutrition Academy (ENA) and the Chair for Medical Education at the University of Munich (LMU).

E-learning (or open distance learning, ODL) appears to be of growing importance in medical and lifesciences education nowadays. Due to the high speed of globalisation and increased required flexibility, also in the medical and lifesciences area, innovative ways of education and life long learning are burning issues. Moreover, time, travel and cost constraints make it necessary to have flexible access to education. ENeA`s aim is to provide CME accredited e-learning modules on topics in the area of early nutrition by translating latest scientific findings from international research pro­jects, such as the European Union funded EarlyNutrition and EARNEST projects along with other co-operating initiatives, into practical application. The e-modules are conceptualised for qualification of health care professionals and new investigators throughout the world who aim at fostering their careers and improving health care services. The modules are created and peer-reviewed by leading international experts in the field.

We invite you to join the EarlyNutrition eAcademy now and to learn more about the fascinating world of early nutrition! 

The first e-module is on "Breastfeeding" and will be available at the end of May

Whether an infant is breastfed or not is important for short- and long-term child health. Breastfeeding in the first half year of life is clearly the best choice for a child‘s nutrition and well-being. Therefore, our first module focuses on breastfeeding, subdivided into three units in order to provide the user with comprehensive up-to-date information on breastfeeding issues.
