User: 5. Describe ways to resolve any difficulties or dilemmas about the choice of food and drink

User: Explain why it is important to be sure that an individual has chosen to finish eating and drinking before clearing away

Weegy: Do you mean in a hospital? You listed this question under 'health', so I'm assuming you mean hospital or nursing home. [ Well, if you give the patient time to eat as much as they choose to, then you're a better judge of how good their appetite is and what nutrients they're getting from their food consumption. If you take the tray away before they've finished the meal, that would interfere with accurate charting. ]
