A practical overview of the skills and rationale for physical examination, this book is a useful reference for student practitioners in nursing and other non-medical prescribers and is an essential revision aid in the build up to clinical exams. This book provides a quick reference guide to the procedures and skills needed to perform physical examination of adults, backed up with evidence and clinical guidelines enabling the reader to justify the way they perform each physical examination. A step-by-step checklist for each body system is presented alongside a rationale to aid understanding and reinforce learning, and is followed by case studies to put the information into context. Further discussion of evidence and clinical guidelines give readers confidence in explaining the way they perform each physical examination.
