Patient Assessment Tutorials, 4th Edition

Patient Assessment Tutorials, 4th Edition

A Step-By-Step Guide for the Dental Hygienist

This updated 4th Edition of Jill Gehrig’s highly visual, step-by-step guide takes dental hygienists-in-training through the process of patient assessment, emphasizing both the actual physical assessment and the human interaction involved.
 
The 4th Edition includes four chapters on communication (including an all-new motivational interviewing chapter), as well as unique Human Element sections that include real-life experiences shared by patients, students, and clinicians.
 
Enhanced by case studies, student learning aids, videos, and a new audio glossary, Patient Assessment Tutorials provides students with everything they need to succeed in the course and their future careers as dental hygienists.

Key Features:
  • An all-new motivational interviewing chapter in Part 1 helps students build skills in a collaborative form of communication designed to elicit and strengthen motivation for behavioral change.
  • New coverage on communicating with patients with special needs, such as autism, Asperger’s, and Down Syndrome, enhances student skills.
  • Online student resources, including video clips, a new audio glossary, and suggested Internet sites, bring concepts and techniques to life.
  • A new Audio Glossary is ideal for mastering the vocabulary of dental hygiene on the go, and especially helpful when English is a second language.
  • Module Overviews and Outlineswith Learning Objectives make information easier to locate, provide an organizational framework, and assist students in recognizing and studying important concepts.
  • Peak Procedures sections provide a straightforward, step-by-step guide for practicing and perfecting assessment techniques in a self-instructional format that fosters autonomy and decision-making skills.
  • Ready References provide quick access to important information and can be removed from the book, laminated or placed in plastic page protectors, and assembled in a notebook for use in clinical settings.
  • The Human Element sections include real-life experiences shared by students, patients, and experienced clinicians to help students understand the clinical relevance of chapter topics.
  • Progressive Case Studies that reveal assessment information as students move through the book encourage students to interpret the findings, relate them to previous information, and make decisions about patient care.
  • Skill Checks allow students to evaluate their strengths and limitations in performing assessment procedures.
  • Key Terminology is highlighted in bold type, clearly defined, and then gathered together into a comprehensive Glossary at the back of the book.
  • Comprehensive Patient Case Studies in the final module present patient assessment data and challenge students to interpret and use the assessment information in patient care planning.
  • Detailed, full-color illustrations and photographs visually guide students through procedures and techniques.

General Information
 
When you buy this book from the Physio Shop you are in fact dealing directly with one of the world's largest medical publishers, Wolters Kluver Health (WKH). WKH is the parent of companies including Lippincott, Williams and Wilkins and the Anatomical Chart Company.
 
We also try to deliver to you anywhere in the world. Just register and login to the shop to see the shipping price to your destination. These costs are heavily subsidized by the publishers. Unfortunately we are restricted to non-USA sales.
 
We work directly with WKH and their distribution channel in the UK, NBN International, to deliver your items. This means there is no middle-man to slow up your delivery. If it is in print/stock and is in their warehouse then they'll get it out to you asap. Your orders are sent directly to the warehouse and are actioned usually within 48hrs during the working week. Sometimes charts and models are on regular re-stocking due to popularity however this is replenished on a weekly basis.
 
If any one item in your purchase is delayed NBN will typically send you what they have in stock and will send on the remainder as soon as it arrives. This is at no additional shipping costs to you. Sending and arriving are however two different things. We send as soon as we can. The mail man and delivery services mean orders can take anything from 48hrs to 3 weeks to arrive depending where in the world you are.
 
Even better, we currently maintain a flat fee structure for shipping of products from WKH. Buy as many books as you like the we will still charge you the one shipping fee. Perhaps club together with friends if you are after the same title to save even more on shipping!
 
All orders are actioned from the UK. The UK and Europe can therefore expect more speedy deliveries than those further afield. Rest assured we'll get it to you as fast as the mailing systems allow.
 
You are also provided with a direct email and phone link on your order invoice that will link you with the person/s responsible for your delivery should you have any queries after purchase.
 
Many thanks for choosing the Physio Shop and happy reading!
