Summary

This practice-oriented, case-based workbook is designed to help you transition from learning about managing conditions to actually managing patient care in the clinical setting. It provides valuable practice in deciding what to do first (prioritization), what tasks can be given to others (delegation), and which patients can safely be assigned to others (assignment).
