Byusing clinical cases throughout, the book helps the reader grasp the practicalrelevance of anatomy and physiology to decision-making and care delivery.

Theclinical cases have been carefully selected to reflect common conditionsencountered in practice today, and the changing patterns of disease andhealthcare. Clear high-quality full colour illustrations,links to appropriate web-based content, and self-assessment material make thisthe perfect, practical textbook for all healthcare students. Early praise:"Having reviewed the text I will be recommending it to my nursingstudents" "It looks like a very good introductory text, with clear illustrations anddiagrams.

I think this would be appropriate for student nurses at differentlevels throughout their training.""I particularly like the approach of making the clinical relevance soclear.

Introducing these at the start really sets the scene for why this topicis so important to clinical practice.""I am very interested in adopting this as a key text for ourcourse." "I particularly like the case histories which bring a clear sight ofapplication.""This book is excellent for the two new modules on anatomy and physiologyI am putting together."Review:"This textbook presents anatomy and physiology in a funand interactive way....It is divided into 14 chapters and the way the authorshave introduced the information gives it a modern twist.

For example, insteadof titling a chapter 'The reproductive system', it is called 'From onegeneration to the next'. .....What works particularly well is the way theauthors have used case studies that reflect the reality of the changingpatterns of health and disease....This book provides a good foundation in clinicalapplication and it seeks to link theory to practice."
