‘This book effectively bridges the gap between dietitian, doctor, nurse and pharmacist and there is much in it to educate even the more experienced practitioner. I recommend the book highly and feel confident that well-thumbed and battered copies will soon be found on wards everywhere.’ Alastair Forbes, Chairman of the British Association of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition ‘This book will help non-specialists to make appropriate choices regarding nutritional care for their patients. It should prove to be a valuable resource for all professions, in many areas of practice.’ Lynne Colagiovanni, Chairman, National Nurses Nutrition Group â€˜This is a much needed comprehensive clinical nutrition guide for busy healthcare professionals. It covers all aspects of nutritional care in a logical and systematic way and will aid clinicians in making reasoned judgments on the nutritional care that their patients require.’ Vera Todorovic, The Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition Group of the British Dietetic Association â€˜This handbook will be an invaluable resource, as it provides a concise, practical guide covering all aspects of clinical nutrition, both for adults and paediatric patients.’ Rebecca White and Vicky Bradnam, British Pharmaceutical Nutrition Group
