Dear Idaho Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Members,
What will the profession of nutrition and dietetics look like in 10-15 years? Now is your opportunity to provide input into the forces or change drivers impacting the profession! After extensive review of the literature and an environmental scan based on the 5 priority categories listed below, the Council on Future Practice (Council) has identified 10 change drivers impacting the profession. The 10 change drivers, their trends and implications are detailed in the document “Change Drivers and Trends Driving the Profession: A Prelude to the Visioning Report 2017.”
All Academy members and credentialed dietetics practitioners are invited to participate in the Council’s visioning process survey to provide feedback on the change drivers and trends as identified by the Council. Your input will be used to identify priorities and shape the recommendations that are developed for the Visioning Report 2017. Complete the survey by December 3 before it’s too late!
After completing the survey, if there are additional change drivers and trends that you feel need to be considered by the Council, please send the newly identified change driver, rationale and supporting documentation to your Academy organizational unit point person by December 10, 2015. The newly identified change drivers and trends should be related to the Council’s identified priority categories for the 2014-2017 visioning process including:
Translating Evidence-Based Research into Practice and Policy
Food and Nutrition Systems and Sustainability
Economic and Market Forces
Please note that the rationale and supporting documentation must be included for all newly identified change drivers in order to be considered by the Council. The Council looks forward to your input on the 10 change drivers and trends! For more information, visit
