The style of this publication and the information it contains are unique. Using a case-study approach, we offer students the opportunity to analyse the circumstances of the case as described by the patient and then draw on the evidence base to treat the condition. In the course of that process, we introduce the new dietetic tools and concepts needed to treat the case, showing how they take effect.
The case studies have been designed to facilitate the acquisition of core knowledge and skills for dietetic practice. They develop both fundamental and complex dietetic skills which can be applied to broader practice. As well, they build in complexity and allow users to develop their knowledge and skills progressively. The case studies provide an opportunity to develop clinical reasoning and decision-making within the context of the Nutrition Care Process and Terminology and are an excellent adjunct to any clinical textbook. On the book’s completion, the user discovers they have acquired the ability to apply a range of complex skills to dietetic practice.
The Nutrition Care Process (NCP) is a systematic, science-based approach to providing nutrition care that also takes account of the patient’s needs and values. This text emphasises the Ready Reckoner form in the text and includes both standard and metric measures. Using the NCP model, clinicians have developed more than 60 nutrition diagnoses, more than 70 terms to describe nutrition interventions and in excess of 170 nutrition indicators for assessing, monitoring and evaluating nutrition status of individuals or groups of individuals.
