Building a bridge from classroom to clinical practice, this casebook is composed of 34 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 medical record information provided such as hospital admission data, laboratory test results, intake/output records, and the physician's progress notes. The case is followed by a series of questions 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.
