Each of the 14 chapters are organized by specific body system disorders and feature cases integrating pharmacology, nutrition, and diagnostic/laboratory tests. The introduction of 15 brand-new cases provides real-life examples to test reader knowledge on a variety of clinical settings including acute, community, home, and long-term care. In addition, there are three new chapters on women's health disorders, psychiatric disorders, and alternative therapies.
