Overview

Pearson’s Comprehensive Medical Assisting covers the tasks of the medical assistant using a step-by-step, competency-based approach. Hundreds of procedures, together with workplace scenarios and critical-thinking exercises, will help you build skills aligned with CAAHEP and ABHES standards. More than 200 procedures are illustrated with an objective, equipment list, method, charting example, and photos and drawings. People and professional skills are represented in lifespan, cultural considerations and workplace features developing interpersonal skills. Case studies relate chapter concepts to medical assistance and are supported by end-of-chapter questions. The 5th Edition adheres to the latest curriculum standards of ABHES. Emphasizing communication skills, it includes two revamped chapters devoted to communication and the addition of medical terminology tables to anatomy and physiology chapters. COVID-19 requirements and sensitivity standards are also new.
