Integrated Clinical Nutrition Studies 2

This module aims to develop and extend students clinical knowledge and expertise beyond the level of Integrated Clinical Nutrition I.  The principles of clinical nutrition therapy and practice are developed through the study of specific disease states, their pathology and current clinical guidelines for treatment.  The contribution of the clinical nutritionist in the clinical assessment and treatment of patients is considered in conjunction with issues of management and the development of professional skills and attitudes in hospital and community settings. Promotion of health and prevention of disease will form an integral part of study. Formal integration with other modules of the course will aim to reinforce the bio psychosocial approach to nutrition practice. The module is designed to be studied in conjunction with Integrated Clinical Nutrition Studies I.
