Topics on pharmacology for dietitians in modern practice

Producció científica: Article en revista indexadaArticleAvaluat per experts


In a previous article, we reviewed the need for dietitians to be knowledgeable in the field of pharmacology. As health care becomes more multidisciplinary, dietitians increasingly treat patients suffering from a range of pathologies and that take multiple medications, the invaluable role of dietitians has grown (mental health, primary care, hospital). Many of these medications have food interactions or provoke nutritional deficiencies. Therefore a strong background in pharmacology is necessary for dietitians to provide the best patient care possible, educate patients and define a diet plan that minimizes drug-related adverse side effects. In this paper, current aspects of the interrelation between dietetic care and pharmacologic treatment are reviewed.
