  • Full coverage of clinical interventions/implications
  • Essential insights into the possible meanings of abnormal values and contraindications
  • Key references that pertain to evidence-based practice

About the Author:

Denise D. Wilson, PhD, APN, ANP, FNP, has been a registered nurse since 1978 and has taught nursing since 1980. She is associate professsor of nursing for Mennonite College of Nursing at Illinois State University, and maintains a clincal practice as a nurse practitioner in internal medicine.

Review:

"Unique features of this book include the emphasis on evidence for practice, interpretation of abnormal results, the influencing factors that might skew the results, and nursing interventions pre- and post-test. The appendixes are a wonderful addition, setting it apart from other books. Here the reader will find common tests; physiology of the endocrine system and how its function may influence test results; patient safety and how to communicate test results; health professional safety while conducting or assisting with tests; and evidence-based practice and how that process is applied in clinical situations....This book is a nice addition and fresh look at an old subject."--"Doody's Review Service"
