Every new print copy of Nutrition Research: Concepts and Applications includes access to the Navigate Companion Website.
Nutrition Research: Concepts & Applications assists students in developing the skills necessary to become knowledgeable consumers of research, conduct and document research projects, and use research findings in the classroom and in supervised practice. Nutrition Research makes research articles approachable and understandable so students can feel confident reading and interpreting not just primary research, but also narrative and systematic reviews. In turn, this text also helps students understand and access practice guidelines to enable their participation in evidence-based nutrition and dietetics practice.
Nutrition Research provides plentiful examples of concepts, ample practice opportunities using questions tied to actual studies, and occasions for step-by-step mastery of concepts. This is the first nutrition research text that starts with the basics and is comprehensive in approach, making it ideal for undergraduate students as well as graduate students with minimal skills reading research.
