Nutrition Care Process Terminology International Workgroup
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.
2019 NCP INTERNATIONAL WORKGROUP MEETING:
The NCP International Workgroup had their annual meeting in Chicago in June 2019. The group discussed nutrition terminology regarding SNOMED CT, application of standardized terminology in Electronic Health Records and cultural differences when documenting. In addition, results from the International Nutrition Care Process and Terminology Implementation Survey (INIS) were disseminated, with an emphasis on the daily use of the NCP and NCPT in the different participating countries. Communication – and how dietitians can work toward better implementation, and daily use of the NCP Model and NCPT, in each country, but also internationally, was discussed. A strength of the group are the inspiring and interesting discussions about nutrition and dietetics with dietitians from so many different countries, with different cultural backgrounds and health care systems.
