For courses in Medical Assisting
Help students develop the procedural, people, and professional skills they need to succeed in the medical assisting profession Pearson's Comprehensive Medical Assisting, Fourth Edition, offers a step-by-step, competency-based approach that covers virtually all facets of the medical assisting profession. Filled with 227 Procedures (32 of which are new), and a variety of workplace scenarios and critical-thinking exercises, the book helps students gain the procedural, people, and professional skills that are fundamental to being an effective Medical Assistant.
The Fourth Edition was reconceived around the latest standards and guidelines published by CAAHEP (the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs) and ABHES (Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools). In this groundbreaking approach, the text's learning objectives were rewritten to directly conform to the standards, and all content was reorganized to flow from these objectives. Mapping documents demonstrate where standards for both of the accrediting bodies are met.
To ensure a comprehensive, cohesive teaching and learning experience, the Fourth Edition's ancillaries also underwent a comprehensive update, and, in the case of the Student Workbook, a significant revision. The detailed, in-depth, follow-along study guide feature, found at the beginning of each Workbook chapter, directly reflects the correlating textbook chapter, providing important reinforcement of the information. The Workbook also features brand-new activities that directly relate to CAAHEP standards, particularly CAAHEP's Affective Competencies. The Instructor's Resource Manual details how each chapter's content conforms to the the specific curriculum standards of accrediting bodies, as well as the content required in various certification exam outlines. An updated Test Bank, PowerPoint Lecture Slides, and set of Lesson Plans round out the new edition's supplement package.
