Other highlights include a greater international focus, expanded content on evidence-based practice and completely revised, updated chapters on genetics, disorders of white blood cells and lymphoid tissues, and innate and acquired immunity.A bound-in CD-ROM and companion Website include Weblinks, an NCLEX tutorial, a Spanish-English audio glossary, monographs of 100 most commonly prescribed drugs, over 30 Concepts in Action animations, 5 Clinical Simulations, and dosage calculation quizzes.
