The practical nursing handbook students can use in the clinical setting! Pocket Companion for Physical Examination and Health Assessment, 4th Canadian Edition makes it fast and easy to look up essential assessment skills and techniques. This portable clinical guide helps students conduct more effective exams by referring to summaries of examination steps, normal versus abnormal findings, lifespan and multicultural considerations, and over 200 full-colour photos and illustrations. With added content on the electronic health record, charting, paediatrics, pregnant and aging adult patients, and reporting, this handbook is a perfect clinical tool for both beginners who are learning assessment skills and practitioners who need a portable reference!

    • Developmental Considerations sections highlight content specific to infants, children, adolescents, pregnant individuals, and older adults.

    • Content on the electronic health record, charting, and reporting provides examples of how to document assessment findings.
    • More than 200 full-colour illustrations demonstrate examination skills, underlying anatomy and physiology, and normal and abnormal findings to provide a complete picture for physical examination.
    • Normal and abnormal examination photos offer a fresh perspective on key system examinations, along with cultural diversity and developmental variations.
    • Abnormal findings tables help students recognize, sort, and describe key abnormal findings.
    • Colour-coded bars visually segment each body system chapter into major sections — anatomy, subjective data, objective data, and abnormal findings — to make content easier to find.
