Summary

Designed for advanced practice nursing students and novice clinicians, Advanced Health Assessment & Clinical Diagnosis in Primary Care, 3rd Edition is a practical resource that takes the readers to the ?next step? of health assessment, beyond basic history and physical examination and into the diagnostic reasoning process. Accessible and concise, it focuses on the physical examination centering on a specific chief complaint rather than a diagnosis of a disease entity. Each chapter is organized in five major areas: Diagnostic Reasoning: Focused History; Key Questions; Diagnostic Reasoning: Focused Physical Examination; Laboratory and Diagnostic Studies; and Differential Diagnosis. The primary care provider who masters the differential diagnoses in this text will be able to accurately diagnose the majority of patients seen in practice today!
