The Evidence-Based Physical Examination Textbook and Handbook Set, Second Edition delivers an empirical approach to history-taking and physical assessment techniques while focusing on patient well-being and health promotion. The textbook utilizes the best evidence and clinical relevance underpinning advanced history-taking and assessment techniques incorporating the most current guidelines from reliable sources. The updated second edition offers more in-depth recognition of population health concepts, and as a result includes greater use of inclusive language, social determinants of health assessments, identification of health inequities, and racial, ethnic, gender, and age considerations within advanced assessment. Case studies, clinical pearls, and key takeaways aid retention, while abundant illustrations, photographic images, and videos demonstrate history-taking and assessment techniques.

Utilizing the evidence and summarizing clinical relevance, this handbook guides the incorporation of the most current evidence-based assessment guidelines from such sources as the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force.
