Editorial Reviews

Judith A. Halstead
This is a reference book on clinical dietetics in the hospital and home setting. Each chapter is structured to concisely outline the nutritional management of various diseases and disorders, including discharge planning and management of the client in long-term care and home settings. Although the purpose and objectives are not explicitly identified by the author, the book is clearly intended to be an easy-to-use quick reference source for healthcare practitioners in a variety of care settings, including private practice. It addresses nutritional concepts and medical conditions for clients across the lifespan. Critical pathways and case management are briefly addressed. Nutrition specialists, dietitians, other healthcare practitioners, students, and educators will find this handbook to be a nice addition to their library. Contributors include experts in nutrition, dietetics, surgery and medicine from medical centers, universities, hospitals and in private practice across the United States. Multiple tables are incorporated throughout the text. References are numerous, up-to-date, and located at the end of each chapter. More than 20 appendixes are included. This is a useful reference, providing a quick overview on the nutritional needs of clients with a variety of medical conditions across the lifespan, meal planning, nutritional support, discharge planning, and nutrition management of clients outside the hospital setting. It would not be an appropriate reference for practitioners or students who desire an in-depth treatment of the content. An attempt has been made to reflect the current healthcare environment by adding references to home care, critical pathways, case management,and reimbursement issues.
