International Dietetics and Nutrition Terminology under review
  • 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 The Fourth Edition of the IDNT will be published in August 2012. Submissions and questions should be directed to Donna Pertel,
