Indispensable for any introductory health occupations course! In its first three editions, Diversified Health Occupations became the most widely used text and supplement package in the field--and the new full-color fourth edition offers even more reasons to adopt it for your introductory courses. With up-to-date discussions of managed care, workplace technology, living wills, patient self-determination, cultural diversity, and much more, the fourth edition's content focuses on all the issues that graduating health care students will face in today's workplace.

The book is divided into two convenient parts: Part One presents the essential skills common to all health care occupations, while Part Two covers skills and procedures for specific health care careers. The already superb teaching tools improve even further in this edition, including new full-color design and photos, as well as eye-catching icons that alert students and teachers to important connections to academics and workplace safety issues.

New to This Edition:

  • New full-color photos and illustrations enhance appeal for students, while eye-catching icons alert them to academic connections and workplace safety issues
  • Expanded information on workplace readiness skills fills the needs of school-to-career programs
  • Vital updated information on universal precautions, OBRA, and isolation techniques ensures student and patient safety
  • New unit on legal directives, and expanded information on managed care, help students understand the professional environment in which they will work
