Résumé :

Do nutrition services benefit older people in terms of morbidity, mortality, or quality of life?
Which health professionals are best qualified to provide such services?
What would be the cost to Medicare of such services?
Would the cost be offset by reduced illness in this population?
This book addresses these questions, provides recommendations for nutrition services for the elderly, and considers how the coverage policy should be approached and practiced. The book discusses the role of nutrition therapy in the management of a number of diseases. It also examines what the elderly receive in the way of nutrition services along the continuum of care settings and addresses the areas of expertise needed by health professionals to provide appropriate nutrition services and therapy.
