About Us


The Academy's Nutrition Care Process and Terminology (NCPT) Committee maintains the standardized terminology for the four steps of the NCP. Modifications to the terminology are made based on research results and changes in practice. All changes to the terminology and reference sheets were carefully reviewed by the NCPT Committee, members of the NCPT Advisory Workgroup, and experts from the international NCP community. For more information, please reference the policy statements for each group in this section.
