This text engages students in activities that put their knowledge of clinical nutrition into action and prepare them for practice in any clinical setting. It serves as a practical educational resource in clinical nutrition that complements the classic textbooks and references widely used in the field of dietetics.
At the core of this textbook are case studies and learning activities. These exercises not only encourage students to practice and develop their skills, they also ask students to explore resources they will use as practitioners, including many from the American Dietetic Association and Dietitians of Canada.
