Management Practice in Dietetics

(Fourth Edition)
Nancy R. Hudson and Patricia Booth

Coming Soon!

A book that moves well beyond the view of dietetics management as primarily in food service, Management Practice in Dietetics deals with management in all areas of dietetics, and provides clear, relevant examples of management principles and the ways they can be applied.

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. They will develop knowledge and skills related to human resources management, and acquire basic skills in finance.Specific topics include 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.

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