Microbiology: A Clinical Approach is a new and unique microbiology textbook for pre-nursing and allied health students. It is clinically-relevant and uses the theme of infection as its foundation,covering all standard topics taught in a pre-nursing/allied health microbiology course. The book follows a novel sequence and includes innovative chapters on emerging infectious diseases, antibiotic resistance, and bioterrorism not seen in other textbooks. Microbiology is student-friendly: its text, figures and electronic resources have been carefully designed to help students understand difficult concepts and to keep them interested in the material. The textbook is supported with a robust ancillary package for instructors which will easily allow them to incorporate the book's new approach into their lectures. Students working towards careers in the healthcare professions will achieve success with Microbiology: A Clinical Approach.
