Essential Health Assessment
by Janice Thompson




Overview -

Conduct a thorough, patient-focused, health assessment...every time.

This practical, real-world approach provides all of the how-tos, what-tos, when-tos, and why-tos you need to master the art and science of assessment in a well-organized, well-illustrated text that makes the material easier to learn now and reference later.

The book simplifies the approach to assessment in two ways. First, it focuses on the normal and the normal variants of the adult, child, elderly, and pregnant patients that you'll see most frequently in practice. Then, when a finding falls outside of those parameters, you'll be able to identify it as abnormal. Second, assessment is presented as a linear and consistent process; so you are able to undertake the same steps in the same order to ensure that you don't miss anything.

"This book is an excellent resource for all nursing students with an easy to use format. Nursing faculty will find that this book provides excellent quiz questions, supportive materials, and resources. A must for nursing students in health assessment courses and in clinical settings "
- Amazon Reviewer

"This is a must Excellent assessment text for health care providers. It has great tips and is an easy read. I would highly recommend it."
- Rose I.

Essential Health Assessment is a remarkably new way to structure and improve health assessment teaching for nursing students. The book is uniquely structured, with outstanding and novel features. It is packed with highly useful real-life illustrations and images, and the layout is beautiful, with excellent use of color coding, similar organization from chapter to chapter, boxes and tables. Unique features include appropriate cultural care, veteran care, holistic concepts such as CLEAR communication, spiritual assessment, and Safe Effective Nursing Care (SENC). Additional notable distinctions are several chapters of high quality content on special populations, including pediatrics, separated into newborn and child/adolescent chapters, as well as a chapter each on assessment of the pregnant woman and of the older adult. It is unusual for health assessment textbooks to offer this level of detail on special populations, and it is a welcome and needed addition. Nursing students, working nurses and faculty alike, should all find this new textbook a unique and ideal resource for learning and practicing health assessment.
