A new, case-based textbook for healthcare and nursing students
All healthcare students have to study anatomy and physiology. They often find it a challenging subject and struggle to see how the subject will link to their professional practice.
Anatomy and Physiology in Healthcare is a brand new textbook focused on what healthcare students need to know about the biological principles which underpin the practice of healthcare.
Uniquely, the book integrates clinical cases with the essential biological facts to provide all students with a thorough understanding of how anatomy and physiology can be applied in healthcare. The cases are presented at the start of each chapter and then re-introduced and developed as the reader’s knowledge increases. By using clinical cases throughout, the book helps the reader grasp the practical relevance of anatomy and physiology to decision-making and care delivery.
The clinical cases have been carefully selected to reflect common conditions encountered in practice today, and the changing patterns of disease and healthcare.
Clear high-quality full colour illustrations, boxes detailing clinical relevance and applications, links to appropriate web-based content, and self-assessment material make this the perfect, practical textbook for all healthcare students.
