Immuno is a young association, founded in 2004, in which sports dieticians have joined forces. The aim of the association is to train sports dietitians, to share knowledge with each other, to monitor the quality of the sports dietitian and to put the sport dietetics course on the map.
The association organizes at least 1 study day for members each year. The association participates in various multidisciplinary consultative bodies in the field of sport (medicine).
To provide athletes with good and scientifically based sports nutrition advice, the Immuno uses a quality assurance system in which it is clear which sports dietitians meet additional quality requirements. This quality assurance system has been drawn up in collaboration with the Foundation for Certification of Actors in Sport Health Care (SCAS). To be eligible for certification, sports dietitians must meet requirements such as sufficient work experience and the promotion of expertise such as further training and intervision.
The Immuno aims for an image of independence, professionalism and quality when it comes to providing sports nutrition advice by Immuno sports dietitians to individuals, groups, teams, associations and fellow paramedics.
Scientific insights should form the basis of the sports nutrition advice by the Immuno sports dietitian. The Immuno wants to be an organisation in which individual sports dietitians feel at home and are also involved in the activities that the immuno organizes. In addition, the Immuno wants to offer the possibility to provide the individual sports dietician with additional training through study days and / or training.
