Overview

Renowned for its holistic perspective and "see and do" approach, this full-color, pocket-sized handbook offers step-by-step guidance on every phase of the nursing assessment—for adults, children, and special populations.

This edition features new chapters on pain assessment and domestic violence assessment, a new Spanish-to-English terminology appendix, more illustrations of examination techniques, and greater emphasis on deviations from normal findings.\
