Organized by body system, this text presents a straightforward, visual approach to conducting a physical examination, with a unique delineation between the routine exam and exams for special circumstances or advanced practice. This new edition presents assessment content in a consistent, two-column format with an emphasis on risk factors and health promotion, and how to alter the exam for clients of various ages or with situational variations. Using a nursing-oriented, holistic focus, Wilson has separate chapters on developmental assessment, ethnic and cultural considerations, mental health assessment, pain assessment, sleep and rest assessment, and nutritional assessment. And with an appealing full-color design that features 950 illustrations, critical thinking questions, case studies, documentation examples and activities, users can be sure that this is one of the best-illustrated and clearest assessment texts available.
