Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (formerly American Dietetic Association) Evidence-Based Nutrition Practice Guidelines
What is an evidence-based nutrition practice guideline?
Evidence-Based Nutrition Practice Guidelines are a series of guiding statements and treatment algorithms which are developed using a systematic process for identifying, analyzing and synthesizing scientific evidence. They are designed to assist practitioner and patient decisions about appropriate nutrition care for specific disease states or conditions in typical settings.
Key elements include scope, interventions and practices considered, major recommendations and corresponding rating of evidence strength, and areas of agreement and disagreement.
What is a guideline practice toolkit?
Evidence-Based Practice Toolkits are a set of companion documents which are disease or condition specific and detail how the practitioner applies the Evidence-Based Nutrition Practice Guideline in practice. They include forms such as documentation forms, outcomes monitoring sheets, client education resources, case studies and MNT protocols for implementing the Evidence-Based Nutrition Practice Guideline. Evidence-Based Nutrition Practice Guidelines and Toolkits incorporate the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Nutrition Care Process and Model as the standard process for patient/client care.
