This ground-breaking reference is designed for clinical dietitians with an interest in elevating their level of practice. Advanced Medical Nutrition Therapy Practice describes a model of advanced practice in medical nutrition therapy and illustrates how dietitians can become advanced-level practitioners through education and training.
Reviews book: This textbook is a practical guide to the application of the philosophy and principles of Integrative and Functional Medical Nutrition Therapy (IFMNT) in the practice of medicine, and the key role nutrition plays in restoring and maintaining wellness. The textbook provides an overview of recent reviews and studies of physiological and biochemical contributions to IFMNT and address nutritional influences in human heath overall, including poor nutrition, genomics, environmental toxicant exposures, fractured human interactions, limited physical movement, stress, sleep deprivation, and other lifestyle factors. Ultimately, this textbook serves to help practitioners, healthcare systems, and policy makers better understand this different and novel approach to complex chronic disorders. It provides the reader with real world examples of applications of the underlying principles and practices of integrative/functional nutrition therapies and presents the most up-to-date intervention strategies and clinical tools to help the reader keep abreast of developments in this emerging specialty field. Many chapters include comprehensive coverage of the topic and clinical applications with supplementary learning features such as case studies, take-home messages, patient and practitioner handouts, algorithms, and suggested readings. Integrative and Functional Medical Nutrition Therapy: Principles and Practices will serve as an invaluable guide for healthcare professionals in their clinical application of nutrition, lifestyle assessment, and intervention for each unique, individual patient.

The accompanying text incorporate prompts for 10 peer-to-peer simulation experiences that reflect the topics presented as part of the decision-tree modules. The text also includes a chapter on the nutrition-focused physical examination, a relatively new area for dietitians.
Reviews book: Building a bridge from classroom to clinical practice, this casebook is composed of 34 realistic case studies appropriate for introductory and advanced level courses in nutrition and diet therapy. Each case study uses the medical record as its structure. The student "solves the case" by using the information provided such as hospital admission data, laboratory test results, intake/output records, and the physician's progress notes. The case is followed by a series of questions that focus on pathophysiology; assessment; clinical, nutritional and behavioral outcomes; interventions; and appropriate follow-up for the patient. This "real world" approach helps to prepare the student for the professional setting. Objectives for student learning within each case are built around the nutrition care process and competencies for dietetic education.
