Overview

Pathophysiology: Concepts of Human Disease takes a human approach to pathophysiology, with an eye on health promotion. The authors draw on real health stories to demonstrate that disease occurs not in a vacuum, but in people, across the lifespan. Their approach reflects a shift in healthcare from understanding late-stage disease to exploring interventions that can sustain health and slow disease progression. The text prioritizes the most prevalent conditions.

For each disorder, content is broken into three sections to ease learning. Conditions, risk factors and behaviors underlying mortality are a point of focus, as are factors in health promotion, including nutrition, lifespan and genetics. You'll study the latest in evidence-based clinical practice, while building competencies that can endure throughout a nursing career.
