Nutrition in General Practice

Giving advice to women


  • Nicola Seabrook, BSc, SRD

Women's health and health education are key responsibilities of community nurses, yet there is a little relevant help available to the busy practitioner. This book therefore presents a companionable, practical and comprehensive source of information on the key nutritional issues that relate to women. Written by a dietician with community experience, it focuses on most of the common conditions which practice nurses, health visitors, midwives, dieticians and general practitioners may encounter or about which questions are asked by patients.
