Summary

This casebook is composed of 39 realistic case studies appropriate for introductory and advanced level courses in nutrition and diet therapy. Each case study uses the medical record as its structure. The student "solves the case" by using the information provided, i.e. hospital admission data, laboratory reports, and physician's narrative. The case is followed by a series of questions and applications that focus on pathophysiology, assessment, clinical, nutritional and behavioral outcomes, interventions, and appropriate follow-up for the patient. This "real world" approach helps to prepare the student for the professional setting. Objectives for student learning within each case are built around the competencies for dietetic education as specified by the American Dietetic Association.

New to the Edition

  • New case "Introductions" help students navigate the case studies and complete outside research more efficiently. Answers to each case can be found on the Web and in the printed Answer Guide.
  • The addition of new cases, including Gastric Bypass Surgery and Gestational Diabetes, make the variety of cases more inline with what students may actually encounter as diet therapists.
  • Lab reports now features "High" and "Low" values for quick assessment of data.
  • InfoTrac College Edition articles are identified with each case to highlight important resources that can be used to solve the cases.
  • Questions for each case study are posted on the student Web site so that students may download questions electronically (http://nutrition.wadsworth.com).
  • Case answers are posted on the instructor Web site for easy accessibility.

Features

  • Each of the 39 case studies includes learning objectives, Hospital Admission sheet, Physician's Report, Laboratory Reports, student questions, References, Web Sites, and InfoTrac College Edition resources.
  • Objectives for student learning within each case are built around the competencies for dietetic education as specified by the American Dietetic Association.
  • The case studies follow a logical sequence of events-- from each diagnosis to its common complications to the terminal stages of disease, if appropriate.
  • The approach is practical, written from the practitioner's perspective, and follows a set of medical nutrition therapy objectives.
