The A.S.P.E.N. Pediatric Nutrition Support Core Curriculum (2nd Ed) focuses on the pediatric patient and the importance of nutrition to the growth and development of children. Written with an interdisciplinary evidence-based approach, it is designed to meet the educational needs of any discipline involved in the nutrition care of pediatric patients. This edition features 37 fully revised and updated chapters and is designed to logically progress from the basic nutrition physiology and changes that occur during development to the skills needed to provide appropriate nutrition for pediatric patients. In each chapter, didactic tools like learning objectives stress important information and “test your knowledge” questions help measure whether the important concepts were understood. This is a valuable resource for certification preparation and the daily nutrition care of pediatric patients.
This text is organized into four parts to cover:
- Introductory information about the mechanics of nutrition intake, basic physiology, and changes that occur with development
- Age-specific nutrition from fetal development through childhood/adolescence
- Various disease states that affect the pediatric population and related nutrition issues
- Nutrition care of the pediatric patient
