The Odessy of the Nutrition Care Process

The article chronicling the development of the original Hammond model (1970-1986), has been released as an Article in Press for the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics on October 10th.  The Hammond model was one of the key documents contributing to the Academy's Nutrition Care Process first published in 2003.

For Marian Hammond, this article has been a labor of love.  The article has been over 7 years in the writing and tells the story of the development of the Nutrition Care Process over a 30+  year period.  The figures show the evolution of the Hammond Model diagram from a handwritten diagram into a more formal graphic that was published in 1986.

It describes in detail the references that were synthesized to contribute to all the concepts and components of the various models as well as the thinking that was behind the various changes made in the Hammond Model iterations.

We have requested that this journal article be considered for open access to adequately allow the international community free access to the article, or as a minimum to have it included on the Academy International NCP website.

For those of you who are Academy members or whose library subscribes to the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and can access it now...for the rest, it may take a while to work through the details of how to best provide access to the international audience.
