Anatomy and Physiology in Healthcare

    By

    All healthcare students have to study anatomy and physiology. They often find it a challenging subject and struggle to see how the subject will link to their professional practice. Anatomy and Physiology in Healthcare is a brand new textbook focused on what healthcare students need to know about the biological principles which underpin the practice of healthcare. Uniquely, the book integrates clinical cases with the essential biological facts to provide all students with a thorough understanding of how anatomy and physiology can be applied in healthcare. By using clinical cases throughout, the book helps the reader grasp the practical relevance of anatomy and physiology to decision-making and care delivery. The clinical cases have been carefully selected to reflect common conditions encountered in practice today, and the changing patterns of disease and healthcare. Clear high-quality full colour illustrations, links to appropriate web-based content, and self-assessment material make this the perfect, practical textbook for all healthcare students. Early praise: "Having reviewed the text I will be recommending it to my nursing students" "It looks like a very good introductory text, with clear illustrations and diagrams. I think this would be appropriate for student nurses at different levels throughout their training." "I particularly like the approach of making the clinical relevance so clear. Introducing these at the start really sets the scene for why this topic is so important to clinical practice." "I am very interested in adopting this as a key text for our course." "I particularly like the case histories which bring a clear sight of application." "This book is excellent for the two new modules on anatomy and physiology I am putting together." Review: "This textbook presents anatomy and physiology in a fun and interactive way....It is divided into 14 chapters and the way the authors have introduced the information gives it a modern twist. For example, instead of titling a chapter 'The reproductive system', it is called 'From one generation to the next'. .....What works particularly well is the way the authors have used case studies that reflect the reality of the changing patterns of health and disease....This book provides a good foundation in clinical application and it seeks to link theory to practice."
