Davis Advantage for Pathophysiology combines an innovative text with an immersive online program that make this challenging but must-know content easier to master.

An access code inside new, printed textbooks unlocks an ebook, as well as access to Davis Advantage. Or choose the all-digital Instant Access option, which includes the ebook and immediate access to Davis Advantage.

The 2nd Edition continues to connect what students are learning in class to the real world in which they will practice… introducing them to the pathophysiologic processes of the conditions they’ll encounter in clinical settings.

Chapters organized by body systems help students understand the relationships between the underlying pathology and the patient assessment data, laboratory findings, and diagnostic testing results. Real-world perspectives bridge the gap between the science of disease and clinical patient care. Students clearly see “how” to interpret assessment findings and “why” to choose interventions.

Using a unique and proven approach across a Learn-Apply-Assess continuum, Davis Advantage engages students and helps them make the connections to key topics. Whether teaching in-person or online, this complete, integrated solution aligns seamlessly with the textbook and equips instructors with actionable analytics to track students’ progress, remediate where needed, and facilitate an active learning environment.

LEARN – Personalized Learning
The foundation of the Davis Advantage platform, Personalized Learning, immerses students in an online learning experience tailored to their needs. Students are assessed on their comprehension of key topics from the text, and then are guided through animated mini-lecture videos and dynamic activities to reinforce learning and bring concepts to life.

APPLY – Clinical Judgment
Clinical Judgment is now included in the Davis Advantage platform to elevate students’ critical thinking and clinical reasoning, helping them to build the clinical judgment skills they need to practice safe and effective nursing care and to prepare for the Next Generation NCLEX® with confidence. Progressive case studies featuring real-life, complex clinical situations challenge students to apply knowledge, make informed decisions, and evaluate outcomes.

ASSESS - Quizzing
Quizzing uses NCLEX®-style questions for assessment and remediation. Its adaptive, question-based format provides the additional practice students need to test their knowledge, master course content, and perform well on course and board exams.

The Capriotti textbook explains pathophysiology in a manner that students can easily grasp. The references to nursing interventions help students apply these concepts in the clinical setting. This is one of the very few textbooks with this combination of didactic content and application.

See what students are saying...
Davis Advantage helped me improve on and remember the content for class. The first class I used it for was pathophysiology and I don't think I would have passed the class without using this. The videos with the personalized learning were especially helpful to summarize the module and give me guidance on what to study.
