Clinical nutrition and dietetics refers to the nutrition of patients with specific health problems that may or may not be related to their diet. It involves assessing patients’ nutritional status in order to improve their health, treat their illness and reduce their healthcare costs.
A clinical dietician sets targets for treating a patient and develops a specialized diet plan to educate the patient and teach them how to manage their own nutrition.
Clinical nutrition and dietetics, which is also referred to as therapeutic nutrition, has become an increasingly important component of an integrated healthcare system.
