INTRODUCTION

Welcome to An Introduction to the Code of Ethics for the Nutrition and Dietetics Profession, a pre-approved accredited CPE self-study program.
Nutrition and dietetics practitioners are faced with ethical situations and dilemmas virtually every day. Because settings for practice vary, the issues faced are very diverse. This mini-program is designed to introduce you to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (Academy) and its credentialing agency the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) Code of Ethics for the Nutrition and Dietetics Profession (Code of Ethics) which is based on a system of ethics built on four moral principles: 1. Non-Maleficence; 2. Autonomy; 3. Beneficence, and 4. Justice, so that you can apply these principles to your own situations.
The term nutrition dietetics practitioner is used in this CPE program to refer to RDs/RDNs and DTRs/NDTRs.
This CPE program is a level 2 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) program approved for two (2) continuing professional education units (CPEUs). That means that the reader has general knowledge of literature and professional practice in the area covered. The focus of the program is to enhance knowledge and application.
To get the most benefit from this program, we suggest you adhere to the following steps:
Step 1: Review the objectives for the CPE program.
Step 2: Study each chapter. As you read, think of patients from your own practice who fit the situation described.
Step 3: Assess what you have learned by answering the self-assessment questions and compare your answers to the answer key at the end of this program. Once you scored at least 80% correct go to our website http://www.easycpecredits.com to submit your Continuing Professional Education Reporting Form.
