Foundations of Anatomy and Physiology: A Workshop Manual with Laboratory Applications

By Ellie Kirov, BSc (BiolSc), Hons PhD (MedSc), Alan Needham

This new practice manual is designed to provide students with the conceptual foundations of anatomy and physiology, as well as the basic critical thinking skills they will need to apply theory to practice in real-life settings.

Written by lecturers Dr. Ellie Kirov and Dr. Alan Needham, who have more than 60 years’ teaching experience between them, the book caters to nursing, health science, and allied health students at varying levels of understanding and ability. Learning activities are scaffolded to enable students to progress to more complex concepts once they have mastered the basics.
