Abstract

The 1995 standards developed by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations are now in effect. In an unprecedented shift, the manual focuses on performance rather than structure and process. It emphasizes the interdisciplinary delivery of care, including nutrition care. This article describes the new standards as they relate to nutrition support professionals.
