The authors of this book have written a balanced textbook based on their combined experience of teaching students of nursing, midwifery, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, radiography, speech therapy, podiatry, and medical laboratory sciences. The approach adopted emphasises the causes and effect mechanisms operating in both health and illness within the framework of homeostasis. The textbook, with its clear illustrations, is also an invaluable resource for lecturers.
