an interdisciplinary approach
Applied Anatomy & Physiology: an interdisciplinary approach provides an overview of basic anatomy and physiology (A&P), and its application to clinical practice.
Written by a team of expert academics and clinicians from a range of health backgrounds, the text uses a problem-solving approach, breaking down difficult A&P concepts through case studies, multiple-choice questions, images, feature boxes and online ancillaries, with a strong focus on the concept of the 'normal' homeostatic process of each system.
Applied Anatomy & Physiology: an interdisciplinary approach encourages students to think critically about how the different body systems work together, providing a deeper understanding of A&P and how to apply this effectively to clinical practice.
Written for students with minimal bioscience background to support you in understanding difficult concepts and processes.
Chapters are aligned to major body systems and include an overview of system structure and function as well as integration of each system with the rest of the body.
Case studies and related multiple-choice questions consolidate chapter content to assist you in testing your knowledge and skills.
The strong focus on the homeostatic process of each system helps you to understand what is 'normal' and how 'normal' works.
Full-colour illustrations from leading Elsevier texts, such as Patton's Anatomy & Physiology, help you to visualise and understand A&P systems and processes.
Includes an eBook with purchase of the print book.
