This subject builds on the content covered in Acute Clinical Dietetics in a delivery format designed to complement student learning during supervised practise focused on medical nutrition therapy across a range of clinical areas, across the lifespan, and diverse socioeconomic and cultural groups. It focuses on further preparing students for the application of medical nutrition therapy, with learning resources and activities that are designed to focus and support students in their clinical internship. The subject covers medical nutrition therapy primarily at a level appropriate for tertiary healthcare interventions, residential aged care facilities and private practice individual case management. Foundational and specialist areas of dietetic practice are covered including intensive care, total parenteral and enteral nutrition, nutritional genomics and paediatrics. The subject includes lectures, webinars and online resources from specialist dietitians in the relevant areas and focus on cases drawn from students’ clinical internship experiences.
