This thoroughly revised and updated Third Edition of a bestselling handbook provides comprehensive coverage of systems approaches to medical nutrition therapy. Designed for graduate nutrition students, dietetic interns, and practicing dietitians, this authoritative handbook provides a solid foundation in and reference to the nutrition support field. Expert contributors present a practical approach to the delivery of parenteral and enteral nutrition. It covers all of the basics—nutritional assessment, nutrition management, monitoring and complications, and formulas, as well as new topics— wound healing, trauma, and critically ill obese patients.

This is the first textbook to fully integrate the Nutrition Care Process into enteral and parenteral nutrition content as specified in the 2008 Commission on Accreditation of Dietetic Education Standard II. The Nutrition Care Process content is updated to reflect changes from the 2011 edition of the International Dietetics and Nutrition Terminology.

Features & Benefits

  • Incorporation of the Nutrition Care Process offers the benefit of facilitating teaching more than a charting format or writing a PES statement. 
  • The case studies in the Appendix provide examples of how dietitians apply the Nutrition Care Process in common clinical situations that incorporate more than one medical diagnosis. In other words, the examples are based on nutrition problems rather than medical problems and can apply to a variety of educational experiences.
  • Chapters are written by practicing clinicians, thus it provides practical clinical information that dietitians can use in practice.
  • The text also offers current nutrition support practice information which is needed in a world where practice is changing and practice accountability is increasing.
