Overview

Completely new, this Study Guide to accompany Pathophysiology for the Health Professions is written to aid students in the comprehension of pathophysiology. The material is presented in an engaging format that allows students to apply the knowledge they have gained from the core text. The material offers a wide range of activities, including labeling exercises, timed quizzes, complex questions focused on definitions and rationale/application, crossword puzzles, challenge assignments, and case studies.

  • Short, timed quizzes test knowledge of abbreviations, acronyms, and drugs.
  • Complex Questions (definitions, rationale/ application, fill-in-blank) enable students to apply their knowledge to more complex situations.
  • Short, Timed Quizzes test students' knowledge of the more factually-based aspects of pathophysiology.
  • Crossword Puzzles on six selected topics allow students to use and become more familiar with their vocabulary.
  • Challenge Assignments that involve medical history, sample drug orders, genetics, and research give students more familiarity with items they'll encounter in their careers
  • Case Studies challenge students to apply their knowledge to real life scenarios.
  • Labeling exercises (unmarked diagrams/charts) challenge students to recall and submit information.
