Nutrition Care Process and Terminology: A Practical Approach is unique! Comprised of three integrated components this learning tool provides a step-by-step approach to skill development in the use of the Nutrition Care Process and Terminology. 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 Cystic Fibrosis case includes 16 activities for Instructors to choose from. Fourteen of those activities are ones that would normally occur within the 60-90 minute outpatient consultation with Gemma. One activity is designed as a self assessment intended to be similar to the process that a dietitian would do when they are preparing fro a consultation for a type of medical condition that they do not normally see. There is one optional activities that is a self assessment for students to determine if they would be ready to provide care for a person with cystic fibrosis.
