Course Project: Nutrition Care Process: Monitoring and Evaluation

Assignment Overview

You are to complete the nutrition care plan based upon the case study below. This week you will complete section M-E of the nutrition care plan, monitoring, and evaluation. Once done, you are to answer a series of questions based upon your final nutrition care plan. This portion of the project is worth a total of 40 points. Please refer to the Grading section of this document for the distribution of these points. You will also find Writing Guidelines within this document that will assist you in meeting the expectations.

This assignment is intended to explore basic nutritional principles such as energy requirements, sources, and uses. Additionally, you will formulate nutritional assessments and describe nutritional requirements corresponding to stages in the life span. You will also examine how effective nutritional counseling is contingent upon collaboration, organization, and concurrence among the members of the health care team.

Assignment Details:

Perform the following tasks:

  • Complete the reading assignment and the interactive lesson before attempting this assignment.
  • Please review the following case study:

Case Study: Mr. Leonard Anderson is a 38-year-old male, 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 215 lbs. This has been his stable weight for most of his adult life. He has been diagnosed with GERD. Testing revealed he has a narrowing of his esophagus from the GERD. His symptoms consisted of food (even though chewed thoroughly) getting caught in his throat, and frequent and severe heartburn about 1 hour after eating. Mr. Anderson continues to eat his diet which is high in carbohydrates and fat. He also complained of some pain in and around his jaw and neck. Mr. Anderson meets with his physician and is started on a proton pump inhibitor. Mr. Anderson is concerned because he has never taken anything besides over-the-counter medicines before. He is also scheduled for a colonoscopy. It was noted that he has diverticulosis.

FILM REACTION PAPER

A reaction paper is just what its name suggests—a paper explaining your reaction to a film.  In this case I am specifically interested in your reaction to the environmental themes or message of the film.  Like any good essay, your reaction paper should develop one primary idea related to the environmental theme or message of the film, support your assertion with specific evidence (usually references to individual shots or scenes, language, visual devices, or music), and present both ideas and evidence in clear language and a logical order.  Settle on one or two key points about the environmental theme or message in the film that you would like to develop. Do not simply provide a summary of the plot or provide your opinion of the film.
As this is an environmental geography class, your essay should focus around your interpretation or understanding of the environmental themes of the film, rather than subplots or technical aspects, with the exception of how these components contribute to, or distract from, the environmental themes.  Be sure to support your assertions with clear examples form the film or readings. I am really looking for you to make connections between these films and other ideas or experiences.

Draw upon the many readings we have done in class, and use the ideas discussed from the readings – conservation, preservation, social injustice, economic environmentalism, or any of the ideas from current events to strengthen your argument.

THE FILM: These independently produced films are available on-line through the Future States TV channel on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/FUTURESTATESTV or their website: http://itvs.org/series/futurestates.  You must select one film from the following list of episodes on which to complete your paper. Season 1: Plastic bag, Mister Green, or Fallout, Season 2: Beholder, Asparagus, Spring of Sorrow, Exposure, White, or That Which Once Was, Season 3: Laura Keller – NB, or The 6th World, or Season 4: Children of the Northern Lights, Return to Elektra Springs.  Each film is about 15 -20 minutes. You may want to watch a couple films before deciding on one for your review.

  1. Your paper should identify the film’s title and any other information you have available. Throughout the paper, the film’s title should be underlined or placed in quotes.
  2. Your reaction paper should be two pages.
  3. Because a reaction paper describes your reaction to a film, it is appropriate to use first person (I, me, my, mine).  But remember that the paper is primarily about the environmental themes in the film, not about you.
  4. Avoid the frequent problem of too much summary! Any viewer can get the gist from viewing the movie, so if your paper devotes too many words to summary, there’s not much “value added” in the paper.  THIS IS BY FAR THE MOST COMMON PROBLEM IN INEFFECTIVE PAPERS! Be CERTAIN that you have developed a clear point of view and that you have supported your point of view with clear evidence using specific language, visual effects, music, or scenes from the film.
  5. Your paper should be typed, double spaced using a standard font. Number pages in the lower left-hand corner
  6. In the upper left-hand corner of your first page, preferably in the header, please type the following heading.

(This link provides a general overview of how to construct a film critique.  You will need to think a little bit outside of the box in order to employ the method.  For example:  Most film “plots” will have a beginning, a middle and an end.  This educational video presents a collection of interrelated stories that tell a story about a particular era.  You will be able to see how the elements are put together in a certain order and manner in order to make an impression.  There are particular vignettes in the videos you have watched which deal with specific events and persons. When taken as a whole, these stories add up to reveal a greater understanding of the Enlightenment.)
