Overview

About the Product

UNDERSTANDING NORMAL AND CLINICAL NUTRITION, 11e, presents the fundamentals of nutrition and nutrition therapy, along with their practical applications today. Starting with normal nutrition, chapters introduce nutrients and their physiological impacts, and nutritional guidelines for good health and preventing disease. Later chapters explore clinical nutrition, including pathophysiology and dietary changes for treating a variety of medical conditions, from obesity and pregnancy to diabetes and HIV. Known for a consistent and student-friendly narrative, UNDERSTANDING NORMAL AND CLINICAL NUTRITION, 11e, also offers resources to help students apply content to their daily lives and in clinical settings. Such features include systematic “How To” discussions, clinical case studies, end-of-chapter questions, in-depth “Highlight” sections, and the MindTap digital learning supplement that enhances student understanding and performance in your nutrition course.

Features

  • Updated Chapters. Reviewed and renewed throughout, every chapter presents the latest developments and evidence-based practice guidelines in nutrition science today.

  • Engaging Vignettes. Chapter openers entitled "Nutrition in Your Life" connect chapter material to readers’ everyday lives, while end-of-chapter “Nutrition Portfolio” vignettes revisit key topics and their impacts on student nutrition.

  • Hands-On Help. Offered throughout the readings, "How To" features provide step-by-step nutrition calculations and proven strategies for helping clients make dietary changes, while “Try It” exercises create opportunities to practice lessons learned.

  • Guideline Features. "Dietary Guidelines for Americans" boxed features draw attention to current recommendations in the normal nutrition chapters, and help students understand and retain them.

  • Healthy Cases. "Case Study" exercises prepare students for a career in nutrition by challenging them to plan nutrition education, counseling, or support in a realistic clinical situation.

  • Challenging Q&A: "Clinical Portfolio" questions at the end of the clinical chapters use case studies to help students apply nutrition concepts from the readings to real life.

  • Nutrition Highlights. These in-depth "Highlight" sections coordinate with each chapter, following the main discussion with a related, current, and often controversial topic. Designed to encourage students to form their own rational, informed opinions, each Highlight also includes Critical Thinking Questions that ask students to evaluate the evidence presented.

  • MindTap® Digital Learning. Created by Cengage Learning to coordinate with the text, MindTap® for Nutrition is the digital learning solution that engages today's tech-savvy students and helps them become higher-level thinkers. Dynamic assignments, customizable applications, real-time course analytics, and a highlighting eReader with note-taking capabilities make this tool an indispensable supplement to any nutrition course.
