Advanced Pediatric Assessment
- Our Price:
Advanced Health Assessment and Physical Examination of Infants, Children, and Adolescents provides in-depth treatment of the physical and psychosocial assessment of children, birth through adolescence. Emphasis will be placed on the developmental and cultural aspects of child assessment. Nursing care, diagnosis, and treatment will not be included. The book will have a dual focus: to serve as a primary pediatric health assessment course textbook for the advanced practice student, and as a reference for practicing nurse practitioners and physicians' assistants. This book will approach the health assessment of the pediatric client by using both physical and psychosocial development as a guiding thread and, systematically, using body systems as a framework. Each section will be preceded by a discussion of relevant developmental variations to taking a pediatric health history and performing the physical examination.
