essential component—the information needed to arrive at a reasonably narrow
differential diagnosis when a patient presented with one of the almost endless
possible complaints. The response to the earlier editions of this text supported
our idea. We hope that this updated edition will continue to help advanced practice students, new practitioners, and experienced practitioners faced with new
As NPs increasingly become the providers of choice for individuals seeking primary and specialty care, the need for expertise in the assessment and diagnostic
processes remains fundamental. In spite of the growth in available technology and
diagnostic studies, performing assessment skills correctly, obtaining valid data, and
interpreting the findings accurately are essential for the safe, high-quality, patientcentered, and cost-effective practice for which NPs are known.
Even once these skills are accomplished, accurate diagnosis remains a difficult
aspect of practice. However, it was our experience that students and practicing
clinicians rarely referred to their health assessment book after completing their
assessment course. Instead, they tended to turn to clinical management texts,
which focus on what to do once the diagnosis is known. This supported our belief
that while assessment texts cover common findings for a limited range of disorders, most are not perceived as helpful in guiding the diagnostic process. Novice
practitioners often spend much energy and time narrowing their differential diagnosis when they have no clear guidance that is driven by the patient or complaint. For this reason, our aim was to develop a guide in the assessment and
diagnostic process that is broad in content and suitable for use in varied settings.
