GIVING NURSES THE PATHOPHYSIOLOGY KNOWLEDGE TO THRIVE IN MODERN PRACTICE
Combining all the benefits of traditional textbook learning with additional videos and online resources that take you further.
Using the person-centred practice framework as its guiding principle, the book explores the scientific principles that underpin health, illness and the main causes of disease. It covers specific disorders, including a new section on the pathology of Covid-19, and applies theory to practice throughout.
- See and learn: over 100 integrated video links providing insights and short explanations
- Full-colour diagrams and figures: all chapters supported by colourful, reader-friendly illustrations.
- Person-centred bioscience: a fictional family woven through the book encourages students to think holistically about pathophysiology and consider the lived-experiences of different conditions and illnesses.
- Online resources: access to online materials for lecturers and students, including multiple choice questions, video links, flashcards, a lecturer test bank, image bank and a media teaching guide.
This is a very good guide for students with enhanced detail about pathophysiology, whilst also explaining it in terms that students can understand. A very good book
This book on pathophysiology is a comprehensive and well-structured resource that is easy to read. The learning process is divided into four stages, with a focus on person-centered care to facilitate practical application. Additionally, there are supplementary learning resources available for students and teaching materials for lecturers.
As a lecturer, I highly recommend this book to my students. Its clear and concise approach to pathophysiology will undoubtedly enhance their understanding and ability to provide person-centered care.
Excellent resource for student and newly qualified nurses. I love the application of pathophysiology to the 'Bodie family' as it considers the whole life cycle and the emphasis on person centred care. It offers the students an overview of common conditions making A&P and pathophysiology accessible to them.
This is a very well designed book. The content is appropriate to Nursing students and the way the authors used a very detailed fictional family is perfect to give a "real life" perspective on pathophysiology, which is something students value. This book is also innovative by including QR codes to extra resources that complement or help visualise the taught concepts or processes. It is a great book. Very likely to be adopted in the future for the Adult Nursing BSc.
Fantastic book, a great resource for lecturers and students. Includes all relevant detail and sets in context. Easy to read and understand.
Very well structured book, clearly explains scientific principles that underpin health and illness. Various activities throughout each topic given, to allow student application and understanding. With the use of images and diagrams throughout this book is informatively illustrated. Would recommend this book for those studying Nursing & in practice.
Used in my Part 3 practice module, especially for practical and simulation sessions. Q very useful text with excellent information within, especially around physiological disorders.
Provides a good overview of pathophysiology for nursing students, very accessible
