Share Article

The complex topic of pathophysiology is clarified and demystified in the ANZ edition of Understanding Pathophysiology – a must-have resource for local nursing students.

This local edition of 'Understanding Pathophysiology' helps students understand complicated bio-medical terminology and relate it to nursing practice.

A comprehensive new edition from Elsevier Australia (http://www.elsevierhealth.com.au) puts the topic of pathophysiology under the microscope.

'Understanding Pathophysiology: ANZ Edition' is an adaptation of the successful American title, 'Understanding Pathophysiology, 4th Edition', and meets the need for a pathophysiology text tailored specifically for local nursing students.

Presenting often-difficult subject matter in an accessible manner ideal for undergraduates, this local edition helps students understand complicated bio-medical terminology and relate it to nursing practice.

It incorporates a lifespan approach and explores contemporary health by examining the effects of an aging population and lifestyle choices on a society’s overall health.

With dedicated chapters on stress, obesity, cancer, mental illness and Indigenous health issues, the book prioritises diseases most relevant to nurses and presents them according to prevalence and rate of incidence in Australia and New Zealand.

'Understanding Pathophysiology: ANZ Edition' explores each body system first by structure and function, then by alteration. Engaging clinical case studies help bring pathophysiology into practice.

Elsevier’s ‘Evolve’ website provides extensive support material for both students and lecturers, while the complete set of online modules available on ‘Pathophysiology Online’ make teaching this difficult subject easier and enhances student learning.

With helpful learning tools like concept maps, key terms, summaries and review questions, 'Understanding Pathophysiology: ANZ Edition' prepares students for a clinical setting and, as such, is an essential resource for local nursing students.
