Foundations and Clinical Applications of Nutrition

New or Used: $44.48
Approaching the study of nutrition and diet therapy from the personal and professional perspective of nursing students, this text emphasizes the role of nursing in health promotion and primary prevention, as well as in medical nutrition therapy. Skills essential for nursing professionals are emphasized for implementation and education of patients and clients about prescribed dietary patterns. A special feature entitled "the nursing approach" ends each chapter, demonstrating the continual application of the nursing process to each content area, and nursing-related content is integrated throughout the text. Margin definitions and notes provide further understanding of chapter content, as well as practical teaching tips for use with clients/patients. Icons highlight age-related variations that require modification of assessment and teaching and further notes provide practical approaches to teaching clients about nutrient and medical nutrition therapy. When appropriate, specific issues of literacy such as strategies for enhancing patient education for those with low literacy skills are also presented in these boxes. Myth boxes provide a basis for eliminating misconceptions about nutrition and health by clarifying the facts, while health debate boxes encourage students to develop their own opinions on controversial health issues. Ethical, social, and community concerns on local, national, and international levels are also highlighted to emphasize the various influences on health and wellness and a cultural sensitivity approach includes ethnic food pyramids and multicultural issues to help students approach, interview, and assess patients from diverse cultural backgrounds. Toward a positive nutrition lifestyle sections in numerous chapters feature psychosocial strategies to support behavioural changes related to health for students and their clients/patients. Critical thinking/clinical applications offer case study scenarios in the medical nutrition therapy chapters, allowing students to apply knowledge to actual clinical situations. Review questions for students help to ensure chapter content comprehension and lists of websites allow for further study of chapter concepts. A chapter on the management of body composition takes a contemporary approach to weight and acknowledges that total fitness and wellness can be experienced by persons of all sizes and equips nurses to educate and support this approach. "Healthy People 2010" nutrition goals and objectives are incorporated where applicable, integrating personal nutrition goals with national objectives for communities. This framework clarifies how the nutritional status of our communities reflects individual nutritional health.
