About

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.

Features and Benefits

  • NUTRITION AND DIET THERAPY is organized by diets and broken into four distinct parts (basic nutrition, nutrition through the life cycle, nutrition in health care, and diet therapy).
  • Reviewer-praised "Nutrition in Practice" features appear at the end of every chapter and explore current topics and specialty areas that relate to students' future careers.
  • "How To" boxes include step-by-step guides to estimations, calculations, and other facets of diet planning. Students are able to apply their critical thinking and mathematical skills.
  • Sample menus provide students with practical examples of meals tailored to meet the nutritional needs of an individual with a specific medical condition. New sample menus for therapeutic diets are included in this edition.
  • "Diet-Drug Interaction" boxes in Chapters 16-25 alert students to the many ways that drugs and nutrients can interact.
  • "Your Diet" exercises guide students through an analysis of their personal food choices, focusing on key nutrients.
  • "Clinical Applications" exercises ask students to apply nutrition concepts to situations that might be encountered in a practical setting, as well as help them practice mathematical calculations, synthesize information from previous chapters, and understand the impact of nutrition on health care professionals or their clients.
  • "Nutrition Assessment" checklists remind students of the most relevant assessment findings specific to a group of disorders and provide cautions regarding the interpretation of assessment parameters.
