When we launched this new website in August, one of the features we were most excited about was the SHAPE Practitioner Certification Course. Previously, when a new practitioner came on board with SHAPE ReClaimed, they would go through a 1-2 hour phone training. This was not a sustainable educational model for onboarding new practitioners with the massive growth of SHAPE ReClaimed, so we progressed to an online course that would give new practitioners all the necessary information to provide the very best care to their SHAPE patients.
Not only is the SHAPE Practitioner Certification Course a great tool for new practitioners just starting out with the program, it is an excellent review for current practitioners. We are encouraging all practitioners to complete the course. When they do, they will receive the Certified Practitioner seal by their name on the Find a Practitioner map as well as access to use it on their website. This shows their level of commitment to their patients and the SHAPE ReClaimed program.
We also host our annual SHAPE Symposium coming up in January 2019. This event is one of the best ways for practitioners to stay current with our living, breathing, ever-evolving program. Be sure to remind your SHAPE practitioner to register and maybe give them a little nudge to complete the certification course.
We know life is busy and often stressful, but we also know that knowledge truly is power. Not only do we have great reading material under Patient Education, we also have this blog, the New Patient Training Course, FAQs, recipes and our Facebook support group. We are continually adding to this library of resources so you can be successful on the SHAPE ReClaimed program and become the best you can be!
