Notice is hereby given that the following correction has been made to the proposed rule in Vol. 36 No. 17, April 30, 2010 issue of the Florida Administrative Weekly.

The correction is as follows:

(21) Except as excepted herein, Tthe licensee’s initial nutritional assessment of a patient must be done in a face-to-face setting, and may not be done by telephone, fax, or internet, except through use of a two point or multiple point video-conferencing system to provide each participant with a video camera, microphone and speakers which allow video and audio communication between all participants as if they were virtually seated in the same room or by any other means in which the patient is not physically present with the licensee. Communication between the patient and the licensee subsequent to the initial nutritional assessment may be accomplished either face-to-face or by other means, in the reasonable clinical judgment of the licensee. Federal programs that are federally funded are exempt from this subsection, so long as the administration of the program follows the dictates of the federal statutes and rules applicable to the program.

THE PERSON TO BE CONTACTED REGARDING THE PROPOSED RULE IS: Allen Hall, Executive Director, Board of Medicine: Dietetics and Nutrition Council/MQA, 4052 Bald Cypress Way, Bin #C05, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3256
