International Workgroup Contacts



The Nutrition Care Process (NCP) International Workgroup provides international expertise and advice to the NCPRO Committee for maintenance and continuing development of the Nutrition Care Process Terminology (NCPT), (formerly IDNT) and related products, including the incorporation of NCPT into SNOMED CT, through a process of matching or modeling the NCPT to SNOMED CT concepts. The NCP International Workgroup will promote and contribute to make the NCPT useful internationally.

The NCP International Workgroup reports to the NCPRO Committee, and has three representatives who fully participate with voting privileges on the NCPRO committee. Members are appointed by the leadership of the Academy’s House of Delegates (HOD) and Board of Directors (BOD).

The NCP International Workgroup is comprised of no more than 12 members of the International Community, comprised of nutrition and dietetics professionals representing different countries and regions of the globe, including invitations extended to an ICDA (International Confederation of Dietetic Associations) representative, an EFAD (European Federation of the Associations of Dietitians) representative, and AFDA, (Asian Federation of Dietetic Associations.) Selection of the NCP International Workgroup will be made by the NCPRO committee each year with recommendations provided by the working group following receipt and prioritisation of the expressions of interest. The Chair and Chair -Elect are selected from members of the International Workgroup, and each will serve a one-year term, and may be re-selected for an additional term.
