Legislative findings and declaration of purpose. The legis- lature finds that the application of scientific knowledge relating to dietetics and nutrition is important in effective care, treatment and prevention of disease or trauma and in the attainment and maintenance of health, and acknowledges that the rendering and communication of sound dietetic and nutrition services in hospitals, nursing homes, extended care and ambulatory care settings, school districts, health departments, private practice and consultation, and in other settings requires trained and competent professionals. The legislature further finds that it is necessary in the provision of medical nutrition therapy, and ther- apeutic diets, for such professionals to be licensed under article 157 of the education law to ensure quality nutrition care, consisting of a nutrition assessment, nutrition diagnosis, nutrition intervention and the monitoring and evaluation of outcomes directly related to the nutri- tion care process. Therefore, it is hereby declared to be the purpose of this act to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public by providing for the licensure and regulation of the activities of persons engaged in the practice of dietetics and nutrition. § 2. Section 8000 of the education law, as added by chapter 635 of the laws of 1991, is amended to read as follows: § 8000. Introduction.
