Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Carole Ann Kenner, PhD, RN, FAAN (The College of New Jersey)
Description: This book covers health assessment to be conducted in any setting, with any population, and encourages critical thinking. The previous edition was published in 2003.
Purpose: The purpose is to guide the novice student through health assessment by facilitating application and comprehensive understanding of the scientific underpinnings of the skill being learned.
Audience: The primary focus is on the novice student.
Features: An overview of general health assessment begins the book and then it moves into data collection and interpretation, and on to population specific sections — adult and special populations. First anatomy and physiology are presented, followed by the health history, data analysis, and validation including documentation. This edition has emphasized pain assessment, since pain is considered the fifth vital sign, spiritual assessment, and family considerations. The book includes a suite of teaching-learning tools including an instructor resource CD-ROM and a student version. Risk factors are presented in red. Many color photos support assessment findings and cultural icons guide the student, as do abnormal findings sections. The only shortcoming is the lack of emphasis on the importance of the health history in terms of genetic considerations.
Assessment: Health assessment books are plentiful. This particular one is strong because of the compendium of resources: websites, video clips, tools for the instructor that generate tests, PowerPoints, and lecture notes as well as potential assignments. The book is truly interactive, allowing the student to label diagrams, practice assessment skills, and get feedback — definitely appealing to the new-age learner. This edition represents a considerably stronger product than in the past.
Kathleen Stilling Burkhart
With this book, the authors have successfully created an innovative, systematic approach to the complete physical examination process as it relates to nurses in clinical practice. In response to a rapidly changing health care environment, nurses from diverse clinical settings need to be armored with a comprehensive clinical knowledge base and expert physical assessment skills. Nurses also need to be able to synthesize the information collected using critical thinking skills to identify client problems and implement an interdisciplinary plan of care. This text provides the tools to assist them in building a solid nursing foundation for performing a complete physical assessment. It is written for nurses from a variety of clinical backgrounds. From the novice nursing student to the advanced practice nurse, the text incorporates both basic assessment skills as well as advanced practice skills. Unlike other physical assessment texts on the market, this text is well grounded in the science of nursing, allowing the reader the ability to relate subjective and objective data collection to clinical nursing practice. This book has a number of ""user friendly"" features that place it above and beyond conventional texts: it is in a three-ring binder notebook format, which allows the reader to open the text flat, and frees hands for practicing assessment techniques; movable sections allow students to remove the section they are studying and not have to carry the entire text; hundreds of color illustrations and photographs depict both normal and abnormal assessment findings; and detailed chapter outlines assist the student in organizing the examination. I strongly recommend this text for anyoneteaching health assessment to nurses. It does a remarkable job integrating the nursing process into health assessment, which makes what nurses do unique in comparison to other disciplines. I found this book to be extremely well thought out and orchestrated. It is a comprehensive systematic approach to the health assessment of patients throughout the lifespan. I look forward to using it next semester with my nurse practitioner students.
