The history taking and communication skill stations are amongst the most difficult postgraduate examinations, where candidates more commonly fail due to an inability to communicate properly with the patient, rather than due to lack of knowledge.

Authored by experienced postgraduate examiners, this book offers students a wealth of real-life scenarios in multi-conversational styles, using a seven-step approach to help them understand the questions and provide clear and succinct answers.

The scenarios are similar to those most frequently encountered in examinations and the model answers are in a typical style expected between doctor and patient, also taking into account candidates for whom English may not be their first language.

The comprehensive text is enhanced by illustrations and figures to assist learning and will be useful not only to candidates preparing for postgraduate clinical examinations, but also to undergraduate students.

100 Cases in Clinical Medicine 3rd Edition

 Clinical Skills  Comments Off on 100 Cases in Clinical Medicine 3rd Edition
Jun 032021
 

Making speedy and appropriate clinical decisions and then choosing the best course of action is an essential skill for doctors. Exploring initial medical assessment, 100 Cases in Clinical Medicine presents 100 scenarios commonly seen by medical students and junior doctors in the emergency or outpatient department, on the ward, or in the community setting.

 

 

 

Each case begins with a succinct summary of the patient’s history, examination, and initial investigation. The text includes photographs where relevant and questions on the diagnosis and management of each case. The answers provide a detailed discussion on each topic, with further illustration where appropriate.

 

 

 

Most of the cases included are common problems but the book also includes more unusual cases to illustrate specific points and to emphasize that rare things do present. The first 20 cases are arranged by systems; the next 80 are in random order because symptoms such as breathlessness and pain may relate to many different clinical problems in various systems.

 

 

 

These true-to-life cases will teach students and junior doctors to recognize important clinical symptoms and signs and to develop the diagnostic and management skills needed for the cases they will encounter on the job.
