The crossroads between nutritional science and personal beliefs have recently led to turmoil within our community. Dietetic professionals are guided by the ethics set forth by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics in every aspect of practice. The speaker will discuss how dietetic professionals can wade through the sea of muddled ethics and strengthen the profession through strong moral values.
Upon successful completion of this one-hour course, the participant should be able to:
Understand areas within practice that can lead to compromised ethics.
Follow the ethical and social media guidelines set forth by the AND.
Make ethical and moral decisions when faced with controversy in the dietetic profession.
