Renowned for its holistic perspective and "see and do" approach, this full-color, pocket-sized handbook offers step-by-step guidance on every phase of the nursing assessment--for adults, children, and special populations. The focus is on what nurses need to know to assess clients: the health history, physical examination, normal and abnormal findings, nursing interventions, and nursing diagnoses. This edition features new chapters on pain assessment and domestic violence assessment, a new Spanish-to-English terminology appendix, more illustrations of examination techniques, and greater emphasis on deviations from normal findings.
