Each module of the Bates' Visual Guide to Physical Examination shows step-by-step examinations with rationales for the clinician's actions and contains expanded discussions of health history taking, interviewing, and describing findings. Graphics throughout the series illustrate key components of anatomy and physiology. Patients and actual expert clinicians represent diverse age groups and cultures to reflect realistic practice settings.
This classic assessment video series is based on the book titled Bates' Guide to Physical Examination and History Taking. The late Barbara Bates gained international recognition as an outstanding professor of medicine and an activist in interdisciplinary health care.
No other product on the market includes the complete videos as provided by MCW Libraries. The e-book versions of the Bates' Guide to Physical Examination and History Taking 11e 2013 that are for individual sale only contain brief excerpts of these videos and not the complete set of modules.
