Overview

NUTRITION AND DIET THERAPY, 8th Edition, is unique in its organization by diets rather than by organ systems or disease states and distinguishes itself through rich pedagogical features that require students to apply their knowledge as they learn it. This text provides core nutrition concepts and up-to-date clinical content at a level that is accessible to the range of health care team members who are responsible for a client’s nutrition needs. NUTRITION AND DIET THERAPY provides the basic facts and a wealth of practical information readers need to assume their responsibility for nutrition care.
