As an academic subject, nutrition has grown enormously in recent years and with it the need for specialist textbooks on the subject. In response to this need, a decision was taken by The Nutrition Society to produce a ground-breaking series of four textbooks, of which Clinical Nutrition is the final. The books in the series:
Clinical Nutrition focuses solely on the sick and metabolically compromised patient. It parallels the text on Nutrition & Metabolism in dealing with clinical nutrition on a system by system basis making the information more accessible to the student. Covering the scientific basis underlying nutritional support, medical ethics and nutritional counselling, the text ends with illustrative clinical case histories. Nutritionists, dieticians and students in these fields will find this an important resource and Libraries in universities, medical schools and establishments teaching and researching in the area of nutrition will find Clinical Nutrition a valuable addition to their shelves.
