This edition has also been released as:
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, nut ...show moreritional 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. Edition/Copyright: 2ND 04
