Responding to a recommendation from the Academy Board of Directors, on May 9, 2011, the Commission on Dietetic Registration voted to require that RDs and DTRs complete a minimum of 1 CPEU of Continuing Professional Education in Ethics (Learning Need Code 1050) during each 5-year recertification cycle in order to recertify. This requirement will be effective starting with the 5-year recertification cycle which ends on May 31, 2017, and will be phased in over a 5 year period for each recertification cycle.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) joint Ethics Committee has developed this "Facilitators' Guide" to assist dietetics educators and practitioners in providing information to current and future members and credentialed practitioners about the Academy/CDR Code of Ethics for the Profession of Dietetics.
This Guide offers an overview of the Academy/CDR Code of Ethics along with guided discussion and is not intended to be an in depth study of professional ethics. Although facilitators are welcome to adapt time frames to their individual schedules, the script, activities and handouts in this Guide have been designed for a one hour and thirty minute presentation. Eleven different handouts are provided for use in a session, including case studies for discussion.
