a. Create a nutritional care plan for your client. This will include an
evaluation of nutritional risk, a list of interventions, and a list of expected
outcomes.

their regular diet? Are enteral feedings by tube necessary? If so, what
formula will you use and why? Describe your recommended method of
administration.
c. Describe your nutrition education teaching session with your patient
and/or their family. What teaching methods will you use (explanation,
