The “Position of the American Dietetic Association: Ethical and Legal Issues in Nutrition, Hydration, and Feeding” that appeared in the May 2008 issue of the Journal, pp 873-882, omitted the RD credential for one of the members of the Consultant Dietitians in Health Care Facilities Dietetics Practice Group on page 882. The correct listing should be Alice Fornari, EdD, RD.

- PreviewIt is the position of the American Dietetic Association that individuals have the right to request or refuse nutrition and hydration as medical treatment. Registered dietitians (RDs) should work collaboratively to make recommendations on providing, withdrawing, or withholding nutrition and hydration in individual cases and serve as active members of institutional ethics committees. RDs have an active role in determining the nutrition and hydration requirements for individuals throughout the lifespan.
