Description

Few things in health care have as direct an impact on patient care as pathophysiology - it’s the “whys” of what happens during disease and what we must do to treat it. By having a solid understanding of pathophysiology, you can provide an accurate, speedy assessment and treatment for your patient. This video teaches you a straightforward model to quickly and thoroughly assess patients, understand the pathophysiology behind their condition, and intervene effectively. Alleviate the fear of missing something with your next patient and grow your confidence that you can handle any situation and patient!
