This casebook is composed of 32 realistic nutrition and diet therapy case studies that each use the medical record as its structure. The reader "solves the case" by using the information provided such as 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 reader for the professional setting. Objectives for learning within each case are built around the competencies for dietetic education as specified by the American Dietetic Association.
