The skills covered in this book are fundamental to the delivery of excellent health care, and can help you to make a real difference to the quality of care that your patients receive. The Nursing and Midwifery Council Standards for pre-registration education call for the nurse to be able to undertake and document a comprehensive, systematic and accurate nursing assessment of the physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs of patients, clients and communities. The text provides the know-how nurses need to interview patients, obtain health histories, perform physical examinations, and interpret findings. Taking a system-by-system approach, "Assessment Made Incredibly Easy" has numerous reader-friendly features that include abundant illustrations, cartoons, checklists, quick quizzes, memory joggers and chapter summaries. It is also a valuable revision aid that will help you as you prepare for your examinations, or further down the line need something to jog your memory about a skill you haven't practiced for a while.
