Overview

Prepare for clinical practice by "solving" 29 realistic case studies in nutrition and medical nutrition therapy. Using the medical record as its structure, you draw on the information provided (hospital admission data, laboratory test results, intake/output records, and physician and other health care provider progress notes) to solve the case. A series of questions follow the case, focusing on pathophysiology; assessment; clinical, nutritional, and behavioral outcomes; interventions; and appropriate follow-up for the patient.

  • NEW CASES: The 6th edition offers several new cases addressing important health care concerns in the United States: short bowel syndrome, renal transplant, pediatric traumatic brain injury, Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, Cystic Fibrosis, and colorectal cancer.
  • FOCUS ON MNT CONCEPTS: This new edition highlights important MNT concepts crucial for practice: malnutrition, use of the nutrition-focused physical exam, treatment of micronutrient deficiencies, nutrition support, and techniques for assessment including indirect calorimetry and DXA.
  • REWRITTEN CONTENT AND QUESTIONS: Revised cases and questions have been rewritten so each case features a smaller number of more focused questions and revised content now incorporates new evidence-based guidelines for both medical and nutritional care.
  • FLEXIBLE ORGANIZATION: New one-page abbreviated versions of some cases provide a structure for use in the classroom and for small group learning. As in the prior edition, instructors may pick and choose from a variety of questions, allowing for variable completion/grading/time requirements.
  • A MEDICAL RECORD APPROACH: Using the medical record as structure, the cases represent the most common diagnoses that rely on nutrition therapy as an essential component of medical care as well as those in which nutrition therapy plays a supporting role. The case layout and organization closely resemble the electronic medical record in both outpatient and inpatient care settings.
  • A FOCUS ON CLINICAL DECISION-MAKING: This edition's 29 case studies place students in clinical situations that support integration of knowledge from many sources, facilitate use of previously learned information, put the student in a decision-making role, and nurture critical thinking.
  • COMPETENCY-BASED: Objectives for each case are coordinated to meet dietetic education competencies.
  • REALISTIC MEDICAL SCENARIOS: This is the only text on the market that uses cases reflecting realistic medical scenarios that impact nutritional care.
  • EVIDENCE-BASED: Cases are consistent with evidence-based guidelines and incorporate up-to-date medications, surgical and other treatments, tests, and normal lab values to simulate current clinical practice.
  • ADAPTABLE: Cases can be easily adapted for use with simulation, standardized patients or interprofessional education scenarios.
  • APPLICABLE: The foundational concepts and steps for nutrition care process can apply to numerous medical conditions other than the ones presented.
  • A CRITICAL THINKING APPROACH: Research is required to complete each case. Students must stretch beyond the basics and examine multiple resources to build rationales and evidence for clinical decision-making.
  • A WIDE RANGE OF CASES: Representing both introductory and advanced-level practice, the cases allow the instructor to choose the cases that fit the students' level of expertise. Faculty are encouraged to not only use full cases for assignments but also to pick specific questions within a case to provide practice on more specific topics such as assessment, nutrition support or fluid and electrolyte balance. New, one-page, "Quick Cases" are abbreviated versions of cases that provide a structure for use in the classroom and for small group learning.
  • A LIFE SPAN APPROACH: The cases cross the life span, allowing students to see the practice of nutrition therapy during childhood, adolescence, pregnancy, and adulthood through the years.
