Nutrition and Dietetics: Practice and Future Trends, Fifth Edition provides a comprehensive overview of the many professions relating to nutrition, with an emphasis on dietetics. It examines what dietitians do, the areas in which they practice, and the education and experiences needed to become a credentialed, fully prepared dietitian nutritionist and dietetic technician.

Nutrition and Dietetics begins by presenting an overview of the profession, the role of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, and the educational requirements for credentialing in Parts I and II. The text truly distinguishes itself in Part III, which uniquely cycles through each major area of practice: clinical practice, food and nutrition systems management, community nutrition, government and military services, consulting, and private practice. Parts IV and V then present the essential roles played by dietitians as leaders, educators, and researchers, and closes with a look into the future of the profession.
