Written by an all-nurse author team, Health and Physical Assessment presents a comprehensive approach to health assessment in which client health, rather than a diagnosis, is the focus. In this book, the client is perceived as a total entity, rather than as an individual with a specific problem that the practitioner must diagnose. Assessing health and identifying health strengths are emphasized and related to promoting and improving peoples' health. This edition features a new introductory chapter on clinical reasoning in determining health status, giving readers an overview of the process of health assessment.
