Designed for graduate nutrition students, dietetic interns, and practicing dietitians, Clinical Case Studies for the Nutrition Care Process presents realistic scenarios for a variety of cases organized in the format of the Nutrition Care Process. Cases are drawn from the author's experience and collected from practitioners who are experts in their field, providing a variety of interesting scenarios. Topics such as adolescent obesity and dietary management in diabetes are explored.

As a part of the American Dietetic Association's Nutrition Care Process (NCP), dietitians, educators, and students have been asked to adopt a new standardized language for nutrition diagnosis. While this process utilizes many aspects of the traditional care model, dietitians may be unsure of how to implement the completely new aspect of standardized language and Nutrition Diagnosis.

Not only does this book include an introductory section on the Nutrition Care Process, but readers will learn how to use the standardized terms, develop a nutrition diagnosis, and apply the standardized language to specific clinical cases.
