This includes pathology of children, adults, and the elderly as well as various forms of trauma, accidents, and disorders that may result in disability. Each chapter contains many full-color figures, tables, and photographs which facilitate better understanding of the material presented. At the end of each chapter are multiple-choice questions, website references, and critical thinking questions. This book also is accompanied with a student Companion Web site, a TestBank, PowerPoint presentations, and other electronic instructor materials.
