I saw the sentence below in a scientific book.
Also found in this book are various strategies to assess patient health factors...
I couldn't understand the "Also found in this book" part. What kind of structure it is?

"Also" - conjunctive adverb, connects the idea of the previous sentence, (i.e. "In this book are ideas about potatoes. Also found in this book are potato recipes.")
"found in this book" - adjective phrase, used in this context to describe the subject of the verb "to be"
"are" - present tense, third person, plural conjugation of the verb "to be"
"various strategies to assess patient health factors" - subject phrase, where "strategies" is the specific noun in question and the other specify the kind of strategies
The meaning of the sentence, then, is that: [In addition to any previous sentences about the matter], [various strategies to assess patient health factors] [are] [in the contents of this book].
