This comprehensive skills manual is designed for students and qualified Nurse Practitioners in health care who are learning to talk to patients, examine them, and to understand and assess their problems. It deals with the health history, common and important symptoms, and the assessment of mental status. In sections devoted to body regions and body systems, the book describes the sequence and techniques of physical examination, and helps the reader to identify selected abnormalities. It emphasizes common or important problems (rather than the infrequent or esoteric) found in both adult and childhood conditions. The sections are designed to help readers apply their knowledge to interpreting symptoms, examining the human body, and understanding physical signs. It is an invaluable resource written specifically for Nurse Practitioners by Nurse Practitioners.


"The manual is user-friendly, with top tips emphasising communication and listening to the patient. It touches on so many of today's key issues such as falls, abuse of older people, child protection, the national service frameworks and the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence. There is a particularly good section on mental health.? 5/5 - Excellent Senior Clinical Governance facilitator, Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust. Nursing Standard:: August 22:: vol 21 no 50
