Patient Evaluation, Data Collection, and Communication: A Pocket Guide for Nurses is an essential resource for students and novice nurses to help develop communication and critical thinking skills in clinical situations. It serves as a guide from initial assessment of a clinical sign or symptom to having an effective dialogue with a physician by using the ISBARR (Introduction, Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendations, Read Back) communication tool.

Designed as an easy-to-use quick reference, this pocket guide provides a systematic review of common signs and symptoms, key assessments for quick documentation, questions to ask the patient or family, and examples of ISBARR conversations that can be utilized in clinical practice.
