Management Practice in Dietetics
The book demonstrates how leadership in dietetics and nutrition fits into the management structure of organizations. Students will become familiar with management tools such as decision-making, communication, and marketing.

The book directly addresses management and customer service competencies that are required for accreditation of academic programs in dietetics and are included in the credentialing examination for registered dietitian nutritionists.
Specific topics include developing and motivating employees, employee discipline, material management, workflow and production, budgeting, information management, and sustainability. Learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter provide focus and direction for students. Margin definitions and a glossary introduce specialized vocabulary and increase comprehension. End of chapter activities aid retention and give students the opportunity for self-testing and application of the material.
