Dillon delivers with assessment information most likely to be needed in the clinical setting in this 2nd edition revision of the pocket guide that is based on the Nursing Health Assessment: A Critical Thinking, Case Studies Approach text. Focus on the relationships among the various body systems promotes the same integrated approach as the text. Bulleted lists and tabular presentation of the text's core content make the information easily accessible; full-color photos and step-by-step assessment techniques make the content easy to follow. Excellent as a stand-alone assessment tool or as an accompaniment to any assessment text! Helps you bridge the gap from classroom to clinical from learning the theory behind assessment to applying it.
