Instructions for Case Study
Please read this case study for my Nutrition class. Please answer all questions following the case study thoroughly. Please answer the question IN THE DOCUMENT. PLEASE cite the reference for the answer after the answer. Please create an APA citation/reference page at the end of the case study. Please fill in the ADIME chart at the end of the case study – it is also a part of the case study so please complete it.
Here are a few sources you can MUST use to answer the questions:
• Textbook of pathophysiology, e.g. Kumar et al.: Robbins & Cotran: Pathologic basis of disease, or trustworthy online sources, e.g. Medscape.com.
• A useful starting point is medicalstudent.com, which leads you to further webpages
• For drugs:
o Pronksy et al.: Food Medication Interactions. (currently 18th edition)
o Medline Plus (.gov)(this is a starting point), http://www.fda.gov/Drugs/default.htm (sometimes helpful), rxlist.com, WebMD, epocrates (requires registration, free, worth the effort in my humble opinion)
