Last chance to join us for a joint webinar presentation - Ethics isn’t Optional: Understanding and Applying the Code of Ethics - Thursday, May 4 @ 2-3:30 PM EDT - Presented by Janet Skates MS, RD, LDN, FADA
Are you encountering ethical dilemmas on the job? In your volunteer work? Dietitians in all areas of practice face difficult situations every day. But unlike some people we observe or interact with, we are bound to honor our professional code of ethics. There may even be times when we are unaware that an action is ethically questionable. This practical educational program will provide an introduction to our professional code of ethics along with valuable resources to help interpret and apply our ethical principles. Together we will explore some ethical landmines in dietetics practice such as issues with non-conventional therapies, electronic health records, privacy, end-of-life care, licensure, and social media.

Learning Objectives
After successfully completing the program, participants will be able to:
  1. Explain why ethics matter in providing quality nutrition care.
  2. Differentiate between ethical, legal, business, and personal issues.
  3. Utilize ethical principles as guidelines for decision making in practice.
  4. Identify and use a systematic process to address ethically challenging situations that practitioners may face.
