Today's Health Professions: Working Together to Provide Quality Care / Edition 1

Which health career is right for you?

What do you need to know to be successful?

How do professionals work together to deliver patient-centered, holistic care?

Here’s the information you need to choose the career that’s right for you.

From athletic trainer to speech pathologist and every major healthcare profession in between, you’ll explore their histories, employment opportunities, licensure requirements, earnings potential, and career paths. Professional healthcare providers share their personal stories; introduce you to their work; and describe what a typical day is like. Their insights help you to see which career might be the right one for you.

You’ll also learn about the important role interdisciplinary collaboration will play throughout your career. As a healthcare professional, you’ll work as a member of a team that’s focused on providing quality, holistic care to your patients. Thought-provoking activities and exercises in the book and online at DavisPlus help you to understand the complexity of care and prepare you to collaborate successfully with other disciplines.
