The PENG Pocket Guide to Clinical Nutrition is an essential tool because:
“It contains all the information we require in order to assess patients on the wards. It is 'the bible' and I would really struggle to do my job effectively without.”
“Because it helps inform and allow us to make complete and accurate nutritional assessments and aids professional judgement in decision making.”
“I use it daily in assessments of patients but as a quick reference guide it is invaluable when faced with consultants/MDT to prove dietetic value.”
“Guides you to calculate estimated requirements for all patient groups, it is the Dietitian's bible.”
“This is essential in our clinical practice (dietetics).”
“Practical evidence nutrition - a perfect guide.”
“Essential evidence base.”
“All the information I need for nutrition assessments is ready to pick up and go and be with me wherever I need it!”
“I could not do my job without it!”
“It gives up to date evidence based information to carry around. A nutrition 'gospel'.”
