Buying other "Evolve eBooks" titles makes your learning experience even better: all of the eBooks will work together on your electronic 'bookshelf', so that you can search across your entire library of nursing eBooks. It is increasingly recognised that nursing and midwifery students require a thorough understanding of the structure and function of the human body in order to practice safely and effectively. The third edition of this stimulating and highly successful text is designed to provide comprehensive support for the physiological component of diploma and degree courses for healthcare students at both initial registration and in continuing professional development. Written and edited by respected nurse educators and researchers, this edition has been fully revised and updated to reflect the changing needs of nursing students, midwifery students and their teachers. The text has been completely redesigned to promote understanding and critical thinking. All the illustrations appear in full colour and each chapter contains numerous questions.
