Pathophysiology: Concepts of Human Disease Book uri icon

abstract

  • Pathophysiology: Concepts of Human Disease focuses on the human aspect of pathophysiology, acknowledging that diseases, disorders, and syndromes occur not in a vacuum, but in people – across the lifespan. Drawing on the health stories of real individuals, the authors provide the latest information in pathophysiology that is relevant to clinical practice, while empowering students with competencies that endure throughout a nursing career. Throughout the text, the approach to pathophysiology reflects a shift of focus in healthcare from understanding diseases in their later stages to understanding risk factors and the interventions that can maintain good health and slow progression of disease in humans.
