Patricia M. Dillon's new 2nd edition of Nursing Health Assessment: A Critical Thinking, Case Studies Approach delivers what you've been asking for - an alternative to books that present health assessment as a collection of techniques with no integrated focus. Dillon delivers an innovative approach that engages students in the assessment process through three important retention-developing features:
Body Systems Integration - outlined clearly in illustrations. Teaches your students to see the relationships among the various body systems.
Case Studies - woven through the chapters. Gives meaning to the assessment and essentially states, "You are assessing this patient " to your students.
Critical Thinking - introduced up front and integrated throughout all the chapters. Asks your students to think as they learn the assessment process and to apply what they've learned.
