International Dietetics and Nutrition Terminology under review
April 01, 2011 | Announcements |
Submissions for Changes or Additions to the ADA’s International Dietetics and Nutrition Terminology are welcome from Dietitians around the world up to June 30, 2011.
In 2012, the American Dietetic Association (ADA) will publish the next edition of the International Dietetics and Nutrition Terminology (IDNT) Reference Manual. International countries or groups are asked to submit changes or additions for the publication by June 30, 2011. The ADA’s Nutrition Care Process/Standardized Language (NCP/SL) will consider submissions after the deadline for emerging issues. Individual submissions are welcome. Countries or organizations may submit as a group (e.g., country, practice or other). Group submissions do not need unanimous support. Majority and minority opinions accompanying the submission are useful for the review process.
The Procedure to Submit Changes to the NCP Vocabulary is available at http://www.eatright.org/HealthProfessionals/content.aspx?id=5903. The Fourth Edition of the IDNT will be published in August 2012. Submissions and questions should be directed to Donna Pertel, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Expert Reviewers are needed for International Dietetics and Nutrition Terminology
The American Dietetic Association’s (ADA) Nutrition Care Process/Standardized Language (NCP/SL) Committee is seeking nutrition professionals from the international community to be volunteer reviewers for the International Dietetics and Nutrition Terminology (IDNT). When a submission and its accompanying material are received by ADA, reviewers are asked to evaluate and comment on the submission for the NCP/SL Committee. The reviewers will have expertise in the area of the concept under review. The reviews will be completed via the email between July 2011 and January 2012. To be considered, a Reviewer Application Form is to be sent to Donna Pertel, MEd, RD, email@example.com by July 1, 2011. You can obtain the Form from the ICDA web site here or you can obtain a copy from Donna Pertel. The ADA Committee working on IDNT/NCP looks forward to hearing from Dietitians around the world who would like to participate in this important project.
