All Academy members and CDR credentialed practitioners are invited and encouraged to visit either web site to review the draft Ethics Opinion. An Ethics Opinion is defined as "an interpretation or application of the Academy/CDR Code of Ethics for the Profession of Dietetics by the Ethics Committee in response to a specific ethics issue or situation facing dietetics practitioners. These opinions will be available to members and credentialed practitioners to serve as an educational guide for their conduct."

The draft Ethics Opinion will be available for review and comment until Thursday, April 25, 2013. After the comment period, the Ethics Committee will review all the comments and make final revisions to the Ethics Opinion before it is submitted to the Academy’s Board of Directors, HOD Leadership Team and Commission on Dietetic Registration. If approved, it will be published in an issue of the Journal of the Academy for Nutrition and Dietetics in 2013.
