About the Advanced Nutrition and Dietetics book series

Nutritional interventions need to be based on solid evidence, but where can you find this information? The British Dietetic Association and the publishers of the Manual of Dietetic Practice present an essential and authoritative reference series on the evidence–base relating to advanced aspects of nutrition and dietetics in selected clinical areas. Each book provides a comprehensive and critical review of key literature in the area. Each covers established areas of understanding, current controversies and areas of future development and investigation, and aims to address key themes, including:

  • Mechanisms of disease and its impact on nutritional status, including metabolism, physiology, and genetics
  • Consequences of disease and undernutrition, including morbidity, mortality and patient perspectives
  • Clinical investigation and management
  • Nutritional assessment, drawing on anthropometric, biochemical, clinical, and dietary approaches
  • Nutritional and dietary management of disease and its impact on nutritional status

Trustworthy, international in scope, and accessible, Advanced Nutrition and Dietetics is a vital resource for a range of practitioners, researchers and educators in nutrition and dietetics, including dietitians, nutritionists, doctors and specialist nurses.

Written in conjunction with the British Dietetic Association, Advanced Nutrition and Dietetics in Nutrition Support provides a thorough and critical review of the fundamental and applied literature in nutrition support.

Extensively evidence–based and internationally relevant, it discusses undernutrition, nutritional screening, assessment and interventions, as well as key clinical conditions likely to require nutrition support, and the approaches to managing this in each of these conditions.

Clinically oriented, Advanced Nutrition and Dietetics in Nutrition Support is the ideal reference for all those managing undernutrition in a range of clinical areas.
