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.

Key features: 

  • 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.

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.
