Building a bridge from classroom to clinical practice, this casebook is composed of 32 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 such as hospital admission data, laboratory reports, and physicianas 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 nutrition care process and competencies for dietetic education.
