Description

Physical Examination Procedures for Advanced Practitioners and Non-Medical Prescribers provides readers with the necessary knowledge and skills to conduct successful physical examinations of adult patients. This evidence-based book, organized by anatomical system, features tables that list physical examination procedures along with potential pathologies. Quick reference summaries for performing each examination are also included. In addition, the book features a chapter on mental health with a checklist covering the main criteria for a thorough mental health examination. Readers can test their skills by answering case study questions at the end of each chapter. Reflective stories are also included to demonstrate the difficulties encountered in everyday practice and to remind readers of the important professional and ethical issues surrounding their work. This book is designed as an aide-memoire for use in practice or revision for exams but can also be a useful resource for medical students, teachers of physical examination skills and other qualified health professionals.
