"The language is informal, colloquial and very friendly, which makes even the most complicated subject easy to read and understand. Its so clear and unintimidating - a brilliant book which I would absolutely recommend to my students" - Dr Yamni Nigam, Senior Lecturer, Swansea University
Anatomy and Physiology for Nursing and Healthcare Professionals, second edition, now including access to the online homework system MasteringA&P, is the most comprehensive, yet accessible, introduction to anatomy and physiology available today. Designed specifically for students of nursing and allied healthcare (including Paramedics, Physios, Occupational Therapists, complimentary medicine and many more), this textbook is the perfect companion while studying at college, university and beyond.
With an applied, full colour visual approach, this best selling book covers the structure and functions of the human body in detail. Crucially, Clinical applications features throughout the text show the relevance of that knowledge in clinical practice and help to close the theory/practice gap.
Each new copy of the book comes with a personal access code to MasteringA&P, the online homework and tutorial system. Mastering is used by over 1,000,000 students worldwide, and is proven to improve exam results.
Students register to watch step-by-step animations, complete labelling exercises, download audio/visual tutorials, interact with lab simulations, solve realistic case studies, and get immediate personalised feedback based on the answers they give so they learn quickly from their mistakes.
"It got me to think more about A&P rather than just listening," - Jade Hill, Student, University of East Anglia
It allows you to learn at your speed, - John Redmond, Student, Anglia Ruskin University
"Definitely I feel that I have gained more from this than a lecture," - Marea Baber, Student, University of East Anglia
MasteringA&P also contains your eText copy of this book, which enables students to easily search for terms, make notes and add highlights as they go along. Lecturers can also make notes and share these with students.
