The unique 3-column format used for teaching students assessment techniques (Assessment Procedures/Normal Findings/Abnormal Findings) breaks the process down into easy-to-understand units. The COLDSPA mnemonic (Character, Onset, Location, Duration, Severity, Pattern, and Associated factors) provides logical structure for the patient interview helping students to remember the most essential questions to ask a client. A new chapter "Assessing Developmental Levels Across the Lifespan" focuses on psychosexual, psychosocial, cognitive, and moral development of young adults, middle-age adults, and older adutls ensuring that the nurse will perform a holistic nursing assessment. New integrated case study guides students through the assessment process helping them to develop the diagnostic reasoning skills every nurse needs. New Evidence-Based Practice Health Promotion and Disease Prevention boxes include Healthy People 2020 goals ensuring best practice. The new art program and interior design enhance readability allowing students to develop the necessary skills needed to perform accurate and timely health assessments.
