Lachel Story’s Pathophysiology: A Practical Approach, Third Edition Continues to Be an Instructor and Student Favorite

Pathophysiology: A Practical Approach, Third EditionDespite providing the foundation for much of nursing education from medical-surgical nursing to pharmacology, pathophysiology continues to intimidate many students. While most textbooks offer too much or not enough information, the new edition of Lachel Story’s Pathophysiology: A Practical Approach selects the ideal level of content and delivers it in a student-friendly, accessible way. Praised by both instructors and students for its clear writing style, use of dynamic images, and current research and epidemiological trends, it employs a concept-based approach.

Watch a recent webinar with the author:

The Third Edition takes an innovative approach that brings faculty and students together as co-learners. This empowering methodology answers recent calls from the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine (formerly the Institute of Medicine) and the Robert Wood Foundation that urge educators to change how they teach young nurses in order to meet the needs of new generations.

New to the Third Edition:

  • More content on pediatric issues
  • An active learning and “flipped classroom” approach
  • Expanded and new case studies
  • Additional online resources
  • Navigate 2 Premier Access

World Health Day Focuses On Talking About Depression

Today marks World Health Day, an international initiative that draws attention to a specific health issue and celebrates the start of the World Health Organization (WHO). This year’s theme is “Depression: Let’s Talk.” It focuses on the importance of talking about depression as a crucial component of recovery, to help reduce the stigma around mental disorders, and to encourage more people to seek help.

According to the WHO,

“Depression affects people of all ages, from all walks of life, in all countries. It causes mental anguish and impacts on people’s ability to carry out even the simplest everyday tasks, with sometimes devastating consequences for relationships with family and friends and the ability to earn a living. At worst, depression can lead to suicide, now the second leading cause of death among 15-29-year olds.”

This year, World Health Day aims to educate the public about depression by examining its causes and illuminating the ways to treat and support those living with depression, especially in overlooked groups, such as older adults. Watch a video from the WHO:

Please join us in recognizing the importance of World Health Day. To learn more, including ways you can help, visit the WHO website.

Review: “this text does everything that a research methods text should do – and it does it well.”

Don’t just take our word for it.

We’ve received outstanding feedback on the new edition of Research Methods for Criminology and Criminal Justice. Here’s what a customer had to say:

Research Methods for Criminology and Criminal Justice is an exciting instructional resource in today’s era of evidence-based criminology and criminal justice. While social research has been of interest in academic criminology and criminal justice ever since the positivist era of more than 100 years ago, it is only in the past two or three decades that rigorous scientific investigations into “what works” have commanded a central role – replacing the arm chair theorizing and untested but long-standing traditional practices of the not-so-distant past.

Research Methods for Criminology and Criminal Justice  Is an important and well-focused tool for educators wanting to introduce students to the importance of today’s evidence-based agenda. Not only does it cover the “what, why, and how” of research, but it accurately describes the “vocabulary of research”, explores many types of research designs, and examines the applicability of both qualitative and quantitative research. In short, this text does everything that a research methods text should do – and it does it well.  For anyone wanting an affordable methods text that is both relevant and informative, Research Methods for Criminology and Criminal Justice fits the bill nicely.
-Frank Schmalleger, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor Emeritus, The University of North Carolina

Hear What Your Peers Have to Say About An Introduction to Crime Scene Investigation

Don’t just take our word for it.

Since the third edition of An Introduction to Crime Scene Investigation published we’ve received outstanding feedback on the text and accompanying resources.  Here’s what customers had to say:

“Introduction to Crime Scene Investigation, Third Edition is very well constructed for an introductory class and covers practical forensic topics not seen in other publications.”
—Wayne Wallace, PhD, University of Cincinnati

“An Introduction to Crime Scene Investigation, by Aric W. Dutelle is a rare gem in today’s crowded textbook market. While other texts focus on the tools available to crime scene investigators, Dutelle goes a step beyond – by explaining the overall investigative process. Along with careful instructions on how to conduct a successful investigation, he warns of the pitfalls that can interfere with an accurate reconstruction of the criminal event.

Well written, and with a clear presentation of contemporary material, An Introduction to Crime Scene Investigation offers a practical, field-based approach to modern investigative principles and practices. It’s unique focus includes both an important discussion of ethical issues, and a description of the often unrealistic public expectations for forensic analysis (referred to in the text as “The CSI Effect”).

The liberal use of informative photographs drawn from actual cases, combined with carefully crafted illustrations vital to understanding crime scenes, make this a text that you’ll want to adopt.

An Introduction to Crime Scene Investigation is priced right for today’s market, and the instructional package is rich in resources.

If you’re teaching a class on crime scene investigation, criminalistics, criminal investigation, or a related topic, then this is the book for you!”
—Frank Schmalleger, PhD, Distinguished Professor Emeritus,
The University of North Carolina
