UNDERSTANDING NUTRITION THERAPY AND PATHOPHYSIOLOGY is a 28-chapter text that focuses on nutrition therapy/diet therapy and pathophysiology topics. This text is rich in pedagogy that encourages critical thinking, offers practical advice, and assists with review of major terms and topics. Chapter content helps students prepare for their future careers by defining the role of nutrition therapy in the healthcare system and the nutrition care process, laying a foundation in pathophysiology, and addressing nutrition therapy for each body system. There is also a series of instructor and student resources, including the new Diet Analysis+ 8.0 program, the Instructor Resource CD-ROM with PowerPoint and electronic copies of the instructor's manual and test bank, and a student Web site with web quizzing. Due to the comprehensive coverage of nutrition therapy, extensive appendices, and an emphasis on pathophysiology, this is a text students will keep beyond the course.Nelms, Marcia is the author of 'Nutrition Therapy and Pathophysiology', published 2006 under ISBN 9780534621544 and ISBN 0534621546.
