Nutrition Care Process Terminology

The Nutrition Care Process (NCP) is a standardised model intended to guide dietitians in providing high quality nutrition care.

NCP Terminology (NCPT) is the standardised language used to support the NCP.

Both the process and terminology were developed in the United States where the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has led its implementation.
