Awarded second place in the 2016 AJN Book of the Year Award in the Digital Products category
“...visually stimulating, responsive to user need, and multifaceted. The preassessment that tailors a learning plan for each student is fantastic, and the lessons that follow include interesting videos and interactive case studies, not just text. The product also provides a scorecard with graphical data display, as well as the functionality for instructors to assign sections and chapters with deadlines. Not only does this resource have expert content, it’s dynamic and enjoyable to use.”—AJN


Introductory Concepts and Clinical Perspectives

Real-world perspectives bridge the gap between the science of disease and clinical patient care. You’ll clearly see “how” to interpret assessment findings and “why” to choose interventions.

Chapters organized by body systems help you understand the relationships between the underlying pathology and the patient assessment data, laboratory findings, and diagnostic testing results.

Davis Advantage for Pathophysiology

A wealth of interactive case studies, quizzes, videos, animations and dynamic exercises, plus an integrated e-book version of the text, offer multiple paths to learning success. This immersive, multimedia experience tracks your progress until you have mastered the concepts and are ready to apply them in class, clinical, and practice.

A 3-year access code inside new, printed texts unlocks Davis Advantage for Pathophysiology for you.

See what instructors are saying...
“My students consistently report that Davis Advantage is one of the best online learning tools they have every experienced.”
- Kimberly Harding, Instructor at Colorado Mountain College

“What I loved about Davis Advantage was the online supportive learning. The short video was packed with valuable information that appealed to the visual learner. The Q&A was great to validate key concepts; then there was the Personalized Teaching Plans for faculty that were an excellent source of an alternative classroom strategy. Loved the set-up!”
- Frances Rice-Farrand DNP, APRN, CNS, CNE, Instructor at California State University

“Davis Advantage for Pathophysiology changed outcomes for the better for my students. Completion of relevant modules before class allowed for far more time in class for a depth of discussion not previously available given the limited time left in class following introduction of the disorders. Having the students go through the interactive learning and assessments before class gave them a basis of understanding and confidence allowing for in class case studies and group discussions where they could apply the material. Students who did complete those modules before class scored 16–24 points higher on the assessments and every single student who completed all modules by the relevant test dates passed that test as well as the course as a whole!“
- Jessica DelBove, PhD, Assistant Professor of Health Sciences at South University

“I had been searching for a textbook that would really help me design an active learning classroom for pathophysiology, because there is so much research to support the benefits of active learning. As I tell my students the first day of class, if active learning was a drug we would stop the trials early because it would unethical to not allow the rest of the community access. Davis Advantage really allowed me to provide the right medicine to my students.”
- Teresa Connolly PhD, RN, Assistant Professor

“In my experience so far with Davis Advantage, I have seen my students come to class prepared with a working knowledge of the topic. The tools Davis Advantage provides has kept my students focused on what is important and given them a strong introduction to the terminology they are expected to know. My students have on multiple occasions told me how helpful the Davis Advantage videos and activities are in assisting them to better grasp the deeper pathophysiologic concepts. I have been very grateful to have Davis Advantage in my classroom this year!”
- Emily Day, Instructor at Crown College

“Davis Advantage Pathophysiology is the best adaptable textbook and online learning system on the market for an online pathophysiology course.”
- Kristopher Schwab, Instructor at Indiana State University

“Davis Advantage is extremely easy to use and effective at helping my students solidify understanding of concepts.”
- Hope Ballentine, Instructor at University of Arkansas

“The students love the online videos and activities. They know the content is current, consistent, and accurate.”
- Nancy Steffen, Instructor at Century College

“Davis Advantage is a very good product. Actually one of the best I have used in my 12 years in higher education.”
- Jen Atteberry, Instructor at St. Cloud State University
