Dietitians around the world have similar practice-based questions and face similar challenges in trying to stay on top of emerging evidence and nutrition research. The story of collaboration to create a sustainable and innovative tool that synthesizes the knowledge foundation for the dietetic profession worldwide is highlighted in this session. Milestones on the road to the international collaboration are shared from the British Dietetic Association, Dietitians Association of Australia and Dietitians of Canada, along with the diverse ways PEN® is being used and how it promotes dietitians as leaders in evidence-based nutrition practice around the globe.
