Comprehensive Guide and Topical Index. Nutrition in Primary Care Series.
Battafarano, Annette M.
Nutrition is well-recognized as a necessary component of educational programs for physicians. This is to be valued in that of all factors affecting health in the United States, none is more important than nutrition. This can be argued from various perspectives, including health promotion, disease prevention, and therapeutic management. In all cases, serious consideration of nutrition related issues in the practice is seen to be one means to achieve cost-effective medical care. These modules were developed to provide more practical knowledge for health care providers, and in particular primary care physicians. The modules were written by dieticians and nutritionists working closely with physicians. The modules were field tested and reviewed by basic and clinical science faculty in a number and variety of educational programs. The introduction to each module explains the importance of the particular topic, and the learning goals and objectives clarify what can be achieved through the study of the material. Self-checks are presented and in all cases, achievement with regard to goals can be evaluated. On the average, 45 minutes are required to complete each module. Each module includes references for the physician and for the physician to give to the patient. Also included are a number of supporting appendices. This document is the faculty guide and comprehensive index to all 26 volumes. A description of the complete series and suggestions for their use are included. (CW)
