Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Julie Poh Thurlow, DrPH, RD (University of Wisconsin-Madison)
Description: This 12th edition maintains its reputation as both a text for teaching clinical nutrition and a valuable reference for practitioners. The title change to Krause's Food and Nutrition Therapy reflects the importance and focus of the nutrition care process in current practice. The previous edition was published in 2004.
Purpose: The purpose is to support the nutrition care process as the standard for dietetics by supplying theoretical knowledge and clinical information in a useful form. A book of this nature is needed by students and practitioners in the field, and this one does an excellent job of providing a strong base of information.
Audience: The authors state that this book is written for students in dietetics, nursing, and other allied health professions and can serve as a ancillary text for other disciplines. They also note that it can be a reference for graduating students. Although it is definitely appropriate for dietetics students, other allied health professionals may find the amount of information somewhat overwhelming. It is, however, an excellent reference. The authors of the various chapters are well known practitioners and authorities in their areas.
Features: The book provides overviews of basic nutrition and life cycle nutrition and then proceeds to give in-depth material on the various areas of clinical nutrition. The book has extensive information on most aspects of practice and gives excellent recommendations for information from the web. What perhaps is best about the book is the practical/procedural information about administering nutritional care. Assessment, nutrition diagnosis, planning, and implementation are demonstrated for each of the conditions presented. Dietary information is extensive both in the chapters and in the appendixes. Each appropriate chapter has a clinical scenario with a sample nutrition diagnosis at the end to provide students an application challenge. Previous editions of this book have been somewhat text dense and difficult to read with comprehension. This edition seems to have solved some of those problems.
Assessment: This is the most authoritative, in-depth, and useful book in the field available today. It covers the basics of pathophysiology and then goes on to present the information the student needs to provide appropriate nutrition therapy. The new edition adds all of the latest DRIs and takes the student through the nutrition care process in a meaningful manner.
