Clinical Nutrition Resource Handbook

Newly revised in September 2015 by the Registered Dietitians at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, the Clinical Nutrition Resource Handbook is a 'must have' for Registered Dietitians and Dietetic Interns. In the latest edition, all of the clinical sections have been updated to reflect current evidence and new sections have been added including ALS and Osteoporosis.

The book is divided into 8 distinct sections:

  • Anthropometric Assessment Tools
  • Determination of Nutritional Status
  • Interpretation of Selected Laboratory Data
  • Assessment of Nutritional Requirements
  • Anatomy and Nutrition-Related Physiology
  • Nutrition Support
  • Condition-Specific Information
  • Conversion Factors

Sunnybrook's Clinical Nutrition Resource Handbook is divided into colour coded sections for ease of use. Pages for hand-written notes and references are included at the end of each section. This handy resource is packed with practical information, but is still small enough to fit in the pocket of a lab coat.
