Advanced Medical Nutrition Therapy
Complete resource needed by clinicians for review and update of acute-based MNT skills and knowledge. The text uses practice-oriented, case-based approach and evidence-based nutrition care plans. Advanced MNT begins with core concepts relating to assessments, as well as EN/PN nutrition, and then goes into specific disease states and specific needs for pediatric through elder care. Each book also offers an eBook version for download.
The authors cover clinical controversies and disagreements within clinical literature. The Clinical Roundtable features consider clinical scenarios for which there is not one clear, correct answer. The accompanying Navigate 2 Premier Access (eBook) includes ten decision tree simulation modules that walk users through how to make clinical decisions and see how each decision impacts the outcome of the patient’s treatment.
