This paper displays the role that Registered Dietitians can play in the care of patients with COPD and it’s related side effects. A registered dietitian nutritionist’s (RDNs) job is to ensure adequate care through thorough assessment, diagnosis, treatment and evaluation, otherwise known as the Nutrition Care Process (ADIME-NCP). Through the story of my uncle and his journey with COPD you are able to understand the struggles this chronic disease can have and how RDN’s play a role in their care.
