The hallmark of a profession is a tangible and enforceable code of ethics, establishing standards for professional behavior. The 2018 Code of Ethics for the Nutrition and Dietetics Profession takes into consideration the profession's expanded roles and responsibilities, complexities of the contemporary work environment, and addresses the preservation and protection of personal health information, end-of-life care, cultural sensitivity, bullying, product sales, technology, and social media. This webinar will describe key changes in the Academy/CDR Code of Ethics and its impact on nutrition and dietetics practice.
