Aims and Scope

Nutrition in Clinical Care (NCC) is a peer-reviewed journal for all clinicians and researchers interested in incorporating nutritional strategies into medical practice. The journal covers preventive nutrition, nutritional therapy of common medical conditions, and nutritional conditions such as obesity, eating disorders, and wasting. The expert editorial boards of NCC contain many of the world's leading physician nutrition specialists and other prominent nutrition specialists. The Journal provides readable, relevant, evidence-based information and tools to facilitate translation into clinical practice.

The primary audience for NCC consists of physicians, nurse practioners, physician's assistants, dieticians, clinical pharmacists, and those involved in the education of these health professionals. The scope of NCC ranges from traditional nutrition topics such as micronutrient deficiency to non-traditional topics such as botanicals.

Nutrition in Clinical Care contains evidence-based reviews on clinically relevant topics, a clinical pharmacy column covering food-drug interactions, supplements, and pharmaceuticals for nutrition indications, capsule reviews of articles relevant to clinical practice, along with expert commentary, reviews of books intended for a medical audience and those in the popular press, and reviews of internet sites and other electronic nutrition resources. Accompanying these materials are patient handouts and clinician's fact sheet keyed to other journal content.
