Summary: Patricia M. Dillon's new 2nd edition of Nursing Health Assessment: A Critical Thinking, Case Studies Approach delivers what you've been asking for - an alternative to books that present health assessment as a collection of techniques with no integrated focus. Dillon delivers an innovative approach that engages students in the assessment process through three important retention-developing features:

  • 1. Body S ...show moreystems Integration - outlined clearly in illustrations. Teaches your students to see the relationships among the various body systems.
  • 2. Case Studies - woven through the chapters. Gives meaning to the assessment and essentially states, "You are assessing this patient!" to your students.
  • 3. Critical Thinking - introduced up front and integratedthroughout all the chapters. Asks your students to think as they learn the assessment process and to apply what they've learned.
Dillon delivers in her updated 2nd edition with the key features (see below) that you wanted - features designed to make your students think, learn and do!

Key Features
  • Two new chapters! One on mental health assessment and one on pain, the "fifth vital sign" (in addition to the pain coverage integrated throughout each systems chapter and featured in the Symptom Analysis Tables.)
  • More step-by-step photos and descriptions of assessment techniques to aid the visual learner.
  • New case studies added, particularly in the systems chapters, and streamlined to lend an easier-to-understand flow to the chapters, helping your students piece it all together while engaging them more actively in the assessment process. Students learn not by memorizing facts, but by relating knowledge to a real person in a more interactive approach.
  • "System Review" illustrations outline the relationship of each body system to all the other systems.
  • "Subjective/Objective Assessment by Body System" illustrations graphically remind students to consider all the body systems in the course of their assessment and encourage the development of their critical thinking skills.
  • More pedagogy added, including learning objectives, key terms, and NCLEX review questions. Glossary with audio pronunciations included in the 2-CD set bound into every book
  • Two Student Resource CDs are enclosed in each copy of the book and include:
  • Developing Your Auscultation Skills - audio files that will allow your students to learn to identify normal and diagnostically significant body sounds. Many common heart, lung and abdominal sounds are presented, recorded from real patients - no computer generated sounds! (NOTE: Your students will get the best results if they use headphones to listen and play the CDs on a CD player designed for music.)
  • Student exercises from all 27 chapters that include crossword puzzles, flash cards, "picture it!" and fill-in-the-blank exercises designed to engage your students as they develop their assessment skills.
  • Student Resources Workbook which includes a glossary with audio pronunciations, printable Assessment Guidelines worksheets, and Symptom Analysis Tables that will help your students in clinical practice by assessing clients with positive symptoms.
  • Student Test Bank with 200 NCLEX-style review questions, including alternate format.
