Core Clinical Cases in Medicine and Medical Specialties Second Edition: A problem-solving approach

Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Steve Bain, Jeffrey W Stephens, Janesh K. Gupta

You’ve read your textbook and your course notes. Now you need to apply your knowledge to real-life clinical situations.

The problem-solving approach of Core Clinical Cases guides you to think of the patient as a whole, rather than as a sequence of unconnected symptoms. With its emphasis on everyday practice strongly linked to underlying theory, the series integrates your knowledge with the realities of managing clinical problems, and provides a basis for developing sound analytical and confident decision-making skills.

The core areas of undergraduate study are covered in a logical sequence of learning activities; the same questions are asked of each clinical case, followed by detailed explanatory answers. OSCE counselling cases, with related questions and answers, also feature in each section.

Key concepts and important information are highlighted, and the reader-friendly layout reflects exactly the type of question you will encounter, making these volumes the perfect revision aid for all types of case-based examination.

The Medicine and Medical Specialties volume, in which all medical subjects have been brought together in a single volume for this second edition, focuses on the following topics: diabetes, endocrinology, rheumatology, renal medicine, cardiology, care of elderly people, respiratory medicine, gastroenterology, haematology, oncology emergencies; neurology, infectious diseases, and dermatology.

Volumes in the Core Clinical Cases series remain absolutely invaluable in the run up to clinical, written, or OSCE examinations, and ideal course companions for all undergraduate medical students at various stages in their clinical training.
