Patricia M. Dillon's new 2nd edition of "Nursing Health Assessment: A Critical Thinking, Case Studies Approach" delivers an alternative to books that present health assessment as a collection of techniques with no integrated focus. Dillon delivers an innovative approach that engages students in the assessment process through three important retention-developing features: Body Systems Integration - outlined clearly in illustrations. It teaches students to see the relationships among the various body systems. Case Studies - woven through the chapters. It gives meaning to the assessment and essentially states, "You are assessing this patient!" to students. Critical Thinking - introduced up front and integrated throughout all the chapters. Dillon delivers in her updated 2nd edition with the key features designed to make students think, learn and do!
