Nutrition Care Process
Step 3: Nutrition Intervention
The Academy's nutrition care process for the profession has four steps - (1) nutrition assessment, (2) nutrition diagnosis, (3) nutrition intervention, and (4) nutrition monitoring and evaluation.
Nutrition Intervention, the third step following assessment and diagnosis, is defined as purposefully planned actions intended to positively change a nutrition-related behavior, environmental condition, or aspect of health status for an individual (and his/her family or caregivers), target group, or the community at large. It consists of two components: planning and implementation.
