The Nature of Disease Pathology for the Health Professions
Geared to allied health students and written in an engaging narrative style, this pathology text is an easy-to-read primer on the etiology and pathogenesis of human disease. This unique book provides a basic understanding of pathology without microscopic pathology and molecular biology details that health professions students do not need. Each chapter reviews normal anatomy and physiology, explains the development of common diseases, lists the major determinants of disease, presents clinical case studies, and includes end-of-chapter problem-solving questions. A bound-in CD-ROM includes animations and a 250-question quiz. Faculty resources include a 2,000-question test bank and PowerPoint slides with lecture notes. The LiveAdviseOnline Student Tutoring and Teaching Advice, powered by Smarthinking, is now available when you adopt this textbook.
