Current Research in Clinical Nutrition

Although the therapeutic and economic efficacy of nutrition has been proven, optimal nutritional care is still scarce among hospital and ambulatory patients. Thus, the need of clinical nutrition has been extensively documented and has enabled improvement in nutritional and biochemical markers, quality of life and reduction in mortality, morbidity, as well as in the length of hospitalization and rehospitalizations.

Collaboration with academic dietitians or with research mentors can be viewed as a useful and realistic pathway to increased participation in the research process. There is a need to integrate concepts and principles of evidence-based practice into dietetics curriculums so that practitioners can routinely apply research findings to clinical practice.
