Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Karen R Kritsch, PhD, RD (University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics)
Description: This book highlights current and emerging issues that nutritionists face in clinical practice. The information is well organized into four sections which examine a nutritionist's role in healthcare, clinical practice issues, evidence-based practice, and global nutrition standards and guidelines.
Purpose: The purpose is to raise awareness of issues and controversies in clinical nutrition practice and to foster growth through critical thinking in relation to current practices. The authors accomplish this by identifying key issues facing nutritionists in clinical practice and selecting chapter contributors who can offer the most current perspectives and share valuable resources. The four sections flow together to meet these worthy objectives.
Audience: Although written for nutrition practitioners in any setting and students with a good knowledge base in nutrition, this book will also provide nurses, pharmacists, physicians, and other healthcare professionals interested in nutrition with an understanding of multidisciplinary approaches to advance healthcare. The editors are well known in the nutrition field and have selected contributors that represent the best in their specialties.
Features: One of the strengths of this book is that it covers a range of issues that encompass professional opportunities and leads into motivational education in science-based practice, critical thinking, and current practice theory and applications. It includes real-life issues in the dietetic professional's role, addressing leadership, career laddering and advancement, and options in clinical nutrition occupations. The layout is reader friendly and each chapter contains valuable tables, figures, and references to recent tools and theories of practice as well as a special insert with Issues to Ponder.
Assessment: This book gives an insightful description of the current issues facing clinical nutrition practitioners and provides vision and motivation. Its strength stems from a wise selection of contributors (practice dietitians, research dietitians, medical doctors, pharmacists, and nurses) with various perspectives and expertise. The book is unique in that it fosters a critical thinking approach and presents key tools in practice, or references to such. Readers gain a sense of the responsibility and an understanding of the nutrition discipline without feeling a sense of burden, despite the authors' clear emphasis on the controversies and challenges in the field. As an advanced clinical nutrition practitioner, I see this book as one of a kind. It addresses the real-life, day-to-day concerns in job performance and satisfaction and extends into a motivational text that teaches science-based practice and best practices. It is clearly written and easier to read than the standard textbook, uses a nice layout, and provides relevant resources and tools.
