Pathophysiology Online for Gould's Pathophysiology for the Health Professions, 6th Edition
Developed for students in the health professions Pathophysiology Online for Gould’s Pathophysiology for the Health Professions, 6th Edition presents disease processes and disorders in a clear and visual way. Modules correspond to material in the main text, and animations, slide shows, and other interactive resources enhance understanding of pathophysiology for any learning style. A case-based approach presents information in small "chunks" for easier comprehension and helps you apply concepts. Within each module, a set of lessons lets you study and review pathophysiology — with exercises to allow self-assessment.
- Clinical Correlation case studies lets you apply pathophysiology to the real world, with each case including a patient with a pathology pertaining to a specific body system, along with an electronic health record and self-assessment questions.
- Self-assessment activities promote learning with Self-Check activities such as image association, drag-and-drop, matching, multiple choice, and flash card activities, and Think About short-answer exercises — all with immediate feedback and source references.
- Animations, slide shows, and audio narration demonstrate the more difficult disease and health processes, showing how, why, when, and the order in which abnormal physiologic processes take place.
- Student-friendly learning tools in each module include a lesson overview with learning objectives, glossary terms, and a module summary.
- Audio glossary offers quick, easy access to new and unfamiliar terms — some with illustrations — along with pronunciations and definitions.
