Welcome to Nutrition Care Process Blog

This blog is devoted to answering questions and sharing perspectives on the Nutrition Care Process (NCP) and the standardized language. 

Even though the NCP Model published in 2008 in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics was developed by members of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, input was received from international dietetics professionals at various points in the process.  Each time NCP workshops and presentations were provided to international audiences questions and comments were brought back to the committee for consideration in the next revisions.  Formal input was solicited during two international meetings in 2005 and 2010.  More recently international representatives are included in the international panel and participate in ongoing dialogues about the terminology as well as the NCP Model.

Questions still arise about how closely this model reflects practice in dietetics in other countries.  However a number of dietetics organizations outside the US have evaluated the NCP model and determined that it was either acceptable as published or with minor modifications it would represent practice in their country.  This blog will present the following types of topics and welcomes your input for discussion:

     -Applicability of Nutrition Care Process to various practice settings
     -Specific applications of each component of the NCP Model
     -Use of the International Nutrition and Dietetics Terminology
     -Application of NCP and IDNT in electronic health records
