|Summary, etc.:||"The eighth edition of Fundamentals of Human Health and Function continues to focus on providing a framework for acquiring knowledge and putting it to work by teaching students to prioritize information, work in a logical sequence, and process data calmly and efficiently. It strives to teach students how to think about each case in a meaningful, systematic way. This book breathes life into theoretical principles and puts students in the mindset of a successful nurse. The framework approach gives students the tools to tackle real-life challenges in a clinical setting. The Nursing Process is the foundation of this book. By learning to identify normal function, assess risk or dysfunction, envision potential outcomes, plan and provide for interventions and evaluate the effectiveness of a treatment, students will be equipped to stay on track while customizing care for each patient. Chapters open with a case study and include critical thinking questions, Apply Your Knowledge Boxes, and Ethical-Legal Boxes to build students' decision-making abilities and clinical judgment. Collaborating with the Healthcare Team Boxes and Patient Teaching Boxes demonstrate the importance of communication in these clinical scenarios. While all books list critical thinking exercises as a feature, most books like Potter and Kozier include these questions at the end of the chapter. Craven weaves critical thinking into most activities throughout the chapter so students are constantly being challenged to think like a professional nurse."--Provided by publisher.|
