Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Carol Boswell, Ed.D.(Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center)
Description: This book is intended as a workbook for use with nutrition assistants in a long term care setting. The content is at the appropriate level. Multiple choice questions are used at the end of each chapter to provide a study guide.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a guide to work with the curriculum to teach lay people to serve as nutrition assistants in a long term care setting. Objectives are provided at the beginning of each chapter. They are acceptable for the level of the anticipated users.
Audience: According to the author, the book is written for nutrition assistants and instructors. The book does appear to address these individuals. It is at the correct level for use by an instructor to direct the education of lay persons studying nutrition.
Features: In addition to basic nutrition information, the book addresses client rights, safety, communication skills, and documentation. Review questions are provided at the end of each chapter. In addition, the author strives to provide practical methods for managing the nutrition needs of the compromised client. Skills checklists are provided which appear helpful. The primary shortcoming of the book is the bland appearance — even the pictures are black and white for the most part.
Assessment: This book is useful for addressing this aspect of a curriculum. The language appears to be appropriate for the anticipated reader level.
