The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics' Council on Future Practice has released the report Moving Forward: A Vision for the Continuum of Dietetics Education, Credentialing and Practice, setting the stage for dialogue at the Academy's House of Delegates Meeting on October 5 in Philadelphia.

Serving as a backgrounder for discussion, the report includes nine recommendations that encompass a vision of what is possible for future dietetics practitioners and educators. While these recommendations are not mandates, they provide a starting point for creating a new future for the profession in the years to come.

The Council on Future Practice was created in response to the Academy's Phase 2 Future Practice and Education Task Force 2008 recommendation to create of a visioning process to identify future practice needs, including education and credentialing to support future practice. It works collaboratively with the Commission on Dietetic Registration and the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics to project and plan for the future practice needs of the profession of nutrition and dietetics. To that end, the visioning report provides direction for preparing students in the future and is not intended to impact current practitioners or educators today.
