Study Guide for Huether and McCance's Understanding Pathophysiology, Canadian Edition, 2nd Edition
Take the shortest path to understanding pathophysiology with this Canadian workbook! Corresponding to the chapters in Huether and McCance's Understanding Pathophysiology, 2nd Canadian Edition, this study guide uses a variety of exercises, activities, and review questions to help you master pathophysiology concepts. Case studies help you put the information together and develop critical thinking and clinical judgment skills. With new Next Generation NCLEX®-style practice questions, this study tool prepares you for success on the NGN examination and in clinical practice.
- More than 2,600 interactive questions in a variety of formats help you review and master high-level pathophysiology content.
- Wide range of engaging activities allows you to assess your knowledge or identify areas for further study with matching definitions, choosing correct words, completing sentences, categorizing clinical examples, explaining pictures, describing differences, and teaching others about pathophysiology.
- Case scenarios feature brief, real-world case studies as well as application questions.
- Close alignment with the format of the Huether and McCance's Understanding Pathophysiology text makes it easy to go back and forth between the two resources.
- Teach People About Pathophysiology questions ask you to respond to questions posed directly from the patient’s point of view.
- Answer key found in the back of the study guide allows you to check answers and evaluate your progress.
- NEW! The only Canadian nursing pathophysiology study guide on the market allows you to more fully grasp and apply complex pathophysiology concepts.
- NEW! Next Generation NCLEX® (NGN) case studies include questions to help you apply pathophysiology concepts and prepare for the NGN examination, with suggested answers included at the back of the book.
