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 includes printed Ready Reckoner forms for International Use. Using the NCP model, clinicians have developed more than 100 nutrition diagnoses, more than 300 terms to describe nutrition interventions, and in excess of 1000 nutrition indicators for assessing, monitoring and evaluating nutrition status of individuals or groups of individuals.
The style of this publication and the information it contains are unique. Using a case-study approach, we offer students, practitioners and clinicians the opportunity to analyze 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.
