Formatted Abstract/Summary
The focus of this book is to provide the reader with knowledge that provides a sound base for clinical judgment. Such knowledge can then be applied in order to provide safe, individualised, and competent nursing care. This easily understood, straightforward Australian edition will help students integrate concepts in pathophysiology, pharmacology and interdisciplinary healthcare interventions.

Multiple learning strategies such as audio files, illustrations, videos and animation media have been developed to help the student succeed. The inclusion of boxes, tables, special features, illustrations as well as synthesis and critical thinking exercises help students to build skills for class and clinical learning for practice as a professional nurse.
