Overview

The new third edition of this text presents holistic health assessment in a unique narrative format that is practical and easy to understand. Introductory chapters reinforce basic skills, from interviewing techniques, to assessment of health beliefs and behaviors. Subsequent assessment chapters are organized by body system and consistently explore anatomy and physiology, examination, and variations from health. Sample Documentation, Diagnoses, and Critical Thinking Questions at the end of each chapter offer students a chance to apply what they've learned to realistic clinical scenarios. Special boxes throughout the text call out Risk Factors, Cultural Considerations, and Helpful Hints, while an entire unit addresses special populations and assessment throughout the lifespan. Every chapter has been carefully reviewed and is fully updated.
