The McKinley/O'Loughlin/Bidle: Anatomy & Physiology: An Integrative Approach text brings multiple elements of the study of A&P together in ways that maximise understanding. Text discussions provide structural details in the context of their functional significance to integrate coverage of anatomy and physiology in each chapter. Chapters emphasise the interdependence of body systems by weaving prior coverage of one system into textual explanations of how other systems work. These system relationships are also covered in Integrate: Concept Connection boxes. All figures are carefully designed to support the text narrative, and carry brief textual explanations to make figures self-contained study tools. Special Concept Overview figures in each chapter tie together multi-faceted concepts in 1- or 2-page visual summaries. Applications are presented in Integrate: Clinical View boxes to apply chapter content using clinical examples that show students what can go wrong in the body, to help crystallise understanding of the norm; clinical scenarios are also used in What Do You Think?, Can You Apply What You've Learned, and Can You Synthesise What You’ve Learned? question sets; and career opportunities pursued by students studying A&P are highlighted at the beginning of each chapter. Everyday analogies and practical advice for remembering material are presented in Integrate: Learning Strategy boxes. Chapters end with a summary of media tools available to help learn each chapters content.
