Hello KAND Members:
House of Delegates values your input on future Professional Issues. Please
consider taking a few minutes to complete the survey to submit a professional issue(s).
agility for the HOD to address issues that have short- and long-term impact on
food and nutrition practice, the HOD Evolution Designers Team recommended a new
process to select strategic and professional issues.
Strategic Issues are
emerging issues with potential impact on the dietetics profession in three or
more years, overriding issues of strategic importance that cut across multiple
discipline areas and support the Academy’s strategic mission, vision, and
Strategic Issues replace Mega
Issues. Examples include Diversity, Technology Obsolescence and Leadership
Development. The Academy’s Council on Future Practice, the organizational unit
comprised of ten members who represent practice, education, credentialing and
accreditation and the Board of Directors, identifies Strategic Issues for
consideration by the HOD.
Professional Issues are
specialized or practice-based topics that need immediate attention by the HOD.
These issues may impact a subset of practice areas within the profession.
Examples of Professional Issues include master’s requirement implementation,
licensure, reimbursement and payment, and preceptor and internship shortages.
Academy members are the
key contributors to determining professional issues. If you
have a professional issue you would like the House of Delegates to consider for
a future dialogue, please complete this survey by May 22, 2020.
As your delegate, I appreciate
you helping me identify which professional issues are important to our
membership. Please make sure to select the Affiliate KAND you are a part of, so
I receive the data, as I am being asked to prioritize our members’ submissions.
