Abstract "This textbook is a tool that is used to help students learn advanced health assessment techniques that focus on the assessment and diagnosis of common disorders of the systems of the body. Most Medical Schools, Physician Assistant School and Schools of Nursing have Advanced Practice curriculums which require an Advanced Health Assessment Course. Most courses are designed to provide students and young practitioners with a glimpse into the minds of experienced clinicians who are assessing and solving therapeutic problems on a daily basis. These students and new practitioners play a vital role in the health assessment of the public. They must know that the focus of the assessment is intense and complete and that the appropriate diagnostic intervention is selected based on solid evidence/clues from the health assessment, which will ensure that the right intervention is ordered for the right patient at the right time with due consideration of costs. It also ensures that the patient knows how, why and when to use the prescribed intervention. This textbook has met this benchmark and will continue to do so with a current edition"-- Provided by publisher.
