To keep abreast with current developments in medicine, members of the health care team require a firm grasp of science to cope with changes in technology and understanding of the mechanisms of body function. This is in addition to developing a range of interpersonal and communication skills. There are sections covering biology, chemistry, physics, nutrition, biochemistry, medical microbiology and physiology. Highly illustrated, it includes over a hundred applications and examples to assist the reader in relating science to health care. Throughout, the text is divided into units containing a common theme, and each chapter contains a list of objectives and a summary.
