Management Practice in Dietetics provides readers with clear, relevant examples of critical management principles and the ways in which they can be applied within foodservice, clinical nutrition, and community nutrition management.

The book demonstrates how leadership in dietetics and nutrition fits into the management structure of organizations. Students become familiar with management tools such as decision-making, communication, and marketing. The book addresses specific competencies that are required for accreditation of academic and supervised practice programs in dietetics, and are included in the credentialing examinations for registered dietitian nutritionists (RDN) and nutrition and dietetics technicians, registered (NDTR). Specific topics include developing and motivating employees, employee discipline, material management, workflow and production, budgeting, information management, and sustainability.

The fifth edition covers new topics, including how to best support individuals transitioning from staff to management or leadership, active listening, protecting one’s image on social media, cultural competency, how to successfully advertise jobs, how to set rate of pay, scientific management, creating a culture of process improvement, biodiversity, and more.

Written in an accessible style, Management Practice in Dietetics is designed for accredited dietetics education programs.
