Reflecting the immediate needs of those on introductory nursing and allied health courses, this book introduces the essential principles of the subject in a friendly manner before relating those principles to the practical scenarios in which students will find themselves.
A study guide for students undergoing professional health training, to accompany Tortora's "Principles of Anatomy and Physiology" (7th ed). Bridging the gap between theory acquired from the textbook and its practical application is the main objective of this study guide. The emphasis is on active learning, with students examining each concept through a series of activities and exercises. Patient scenarios are presented, providing the focus for chemical and biological topics, as well as patient care methods. By approaching each concept several times from different points of view, understanding is reinforced and students see how the ideas of the textbook apply to real, clinical situations.
