About

Overview

NUTRITION THERAPY AND PATHOPHYSIOLOGY, 3E provides a comprehensive review of disease pathophysiology and treatment with a focus on current research into and application of evidence-based nutritional care for students, clinicians, and researchers. The third edition continues to provide an all-in-one resource for the study of nutrition therapy that closely integrates the nutrition care process through its chapter organization and pedagogy. NUTRITION THERAPY AND PATHOPHYSIOLOGY strives to prepare students for success in clinical practice and foster growth in expertise in their field.

Features and Benefits

  • NUTRITION THERAPY AND PATHOPHYSIOLOGY, 3E provides ideal coverage for instructors who want a text focused on "clinical" or "diet therapy" topics without the basic nutrition chapters.
  • An emphasis on pathophysiology clearly connects nutrition therapy practices and expected outcomes to underlying disease processes at each level of organization, from cells to organ systems.
  • In-chapter boxes throughout the text focus students on topics related to clinical applications, research, brief historical developments in nutrition, and nutrition therapy for special populations.
  • Practitioner Interviews provide real-life perspectives on working with patients in different specializations as well as advice for dietetic interns.
  • Chapter Review Questions review key concepts in a discussion format; their answers located in the appendix provide students with a quick and easy reference.
  • End-of-chapter tables describing complementary and alternative therapies provide a handy reference for the intern or practitioner.
  • Additional learning aids, including chapter glossaries, informative tables, explanatory figures, and web links with brief annotations reinforce student learning.

What's New

  • Twenty-six new Life Cycle Perspectives features have been added to provide greater coverage of nutrition therapy to meet the unique needs of pediatric and geriatric populations.
  • Chapters in Parts 1 and 2 have been revised to reflect the current scope and standards of dietetics practice, with a focus on the appropriate application of the nutrition care process, including standardized documentation of care using International Dietetics and Nutritional Terminology.
  • All chapters in Part 4 have been updated with reviews of the latest research into pathophysiology, medical treatment, and the role of nutrition and explanations of current evidence-based practice guidelines; several chapters have been streamlined to focus more on the concepts and practical advice most useful to students.
  • The third edition provides new or expanded coverage of the assessment of malnutrition, the use of evidence-based guidelines to guide appropriate nutrition interventions, and the monitoring and evaluation step of the nutrition care process. The third edition builds on its previous foundation of pathophysiology with additional integration of the aspects of inflammation and genomics that may affect nutrition goals and intervention decisions.
  • New illustrations enhance understanding of disease pathophysiology and progression (e.g., congestive heart failure, irritable bowel syndrome, cell mitosis in cancer, and metabolic blocks), surgical procedures (e.g., fundoplication and distal splenorenal shunt), and assessment/treatment protocols (e.g., estimation of energy needs, diagnosis of malnutrition, weight management, hypertension, and nutrition support during metabolic stress).
  • New photographs of attractive foods appropriate for therapeutic diets are included to emphasize the connection between nutrient prescriptions and the day-to-day meals that provide them.
