Evidence-Based Nutrition Practice Guidelines

A series of guiding statements and treatment algorithms, Evidence-Based Nutrition Practice Guidelines 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 (with corresponding rating of evidence strength); and areas of agreement and disagreement. Evidence-Based Practice Toolkits are sets of companion documents that detail how the practitioner applies the guideline in practice. Evidence-Based Nutrition Practice Guidelines and Toolkits incorporate the Nutrition Care Process and Model as the standard process for patient and client care.

Evidence-Based Nutrition Practice Guidelines and Toolkits are published through the Evidence Analysis Library and listed on (for as long as they are active).
