In-Book and Online Case Studies highlight current issues, such as cultural sensitivity, and allow students to apply key concepts to real-life scenarios. Updated activities give students practice in developing their own communication skills and style. Updated discussion questions encourage students to explore and respond to key communication issues and problems. Valuable Appendices contain the standardized language for the Nutrition Care Process from the International Dietetics & Nutrition Terminology (IDNT) Reference Manual.
