Academy Provides Input to CDC for COVID-19 Data Collections

The Academy provided the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention with suggestions to enhance the utility of each information collection and to improve awareness of the importance of RDNs and MNT at all stages of the COVID-19 treatment process. Specific suggestions included adding questions about licensure and telehealth, M.D. referral to RDNs to apply MNT to modify COVID-19 morbidity, adequacy of enteral tubing, and provisions for post-discharge care.
