Overview

This adaptation of Bates' Guide to Physical Examination and History Taking has been fully and extensively revised to meet the needs of Canadian nurses. Content has been expanded on health promotion, symptom analysis, client teaching, and documentation, with added new chapters on pain, nutrition, and psychosocial assessment. The classic strengths of the Bates' parent text remain: precise explanations of technique, clear and compelling visuals, and the easy-to-use two-column format.

The Canadian Bates' Guide includes suggested research articles of interest to Canadian nurses and Canadian Resource sections with pertinent Web sites. Cultural Icons highlight special considerations pertinent to demographic groups in Canada with regard to history taking, examinations, and abnormalities.
