Case Studies


NCPro Case Studies
Case studies demonstrate theoretical concepts in an applied setting.
Nutrition Care Process and Terminology: A Practical Approach uses clinical case studies as a means of examining the Nutrition Care Process. Each NCPro case study is based on a realistic clinical encounter between patient and dietitian. Guided questions concerning the encounter address each stage of the NCP.
