Manual of Dietetic Practice, 4th Edition (1405135255) cover image
The standard work for all those involved in the field of clinical nutrition and dietetics, The Manual of Dietetic Practice has been equipping health care professionals with the essential foundations on which to build expertise and specialist skill since it was first published in 1988.


The fourth edition responds to the changing demand for multidisciplinary, patient-centred, evidence-based practice and has been expanded to include dedicated chapters covering adult nutrition, freelance dietetics, complementary and alternative therapies.


Compiled from the knowledge of both individual experts and the British Dietetic Association’s Specialist Groups, this truly is the essential guide to the principles of dietetics across its whole range.
