Health Assessment and Physical Examination
Estes, Mary Ellen Zator , Calleja, Pauline, Theobald, Karen A., & Harvey, Theresa (2013) Health Assessment and Physical Examination. Health Assessment and Physical Examination. Cengage Learning Australia Pty Limited, South Melbourne, VIC.
"This first Australia and New Zealand edition of the comprehensive Estes’ Health Assessment and Physical Examination is designed to teach students to assess a patient’s physical, psychological, cultural and emotional dimensions of health as a foundation of nursing care. The skills of interviewing, inspection, percussion, palpation, auscultation, and documentation are defined to help students to make clinical assessments and promote healthy patient outcomes. A strong emphasis on science encompasses all the technical aspects of anatomy, physiology and assessment, while highlighting clinically relevant information. Emphasis on caring is displayed through themes of assessment of the whole person, which also encourages nurses to think about care for themselves as well as patients."--publisher website
