Paediatric Clinical Examination Made Easy 6th Edition

 Clinical Skills, Pediatrics  Comments Off on Paediatric Clinical Examination Made Easy 6th Edition
Aug 312022

Fully revised, this is an updated new edition of a much-loved book which has built a reputation for pithy, entertaining good sense over the course of six editions. ‘Children are different. Paediatrics is much more than medicine miniaturised.’

From reviews of the previous edition:

‘All in all a very handy book for the student, the resident or other professionals working with children. I had a lot of fun reading it.’

‘The book is full of wonderful illustrations, and funny and profound advice with quotations, like the words of Sir Dominic Corrigan (1853): “The trouble with many doctors is not that they do not know enough but that they do not see enough”, or the advice to teach thy tongue to say” “I do not know” (Rabbi Moses Maimonides or Rambam, 1135-1204). I have used this book for my final medical year paediatrics exams, the DCH and the MRCP and it has been a great help. It reminds us of the most important and basic things – history and examination, and of course a friendly demeanour.’

    • Short, manageable chapter
    • Clinical examples of examination techniques
    • Very helpful tips and topics section
    • Clinical checklists
  • Simply illustrated
    • Updated throughout
    • New section of ‘questions of fives’ questions
  • Short glossary of Latin terms

History Taking and Communication Skill Stations for Internal Medicine Examinations 1st Edition

 Clinical Skills, Internal Medicine  Comments Off on History Taking and Communication Skill Stations for Internal Medicine Examinations 1st Edition
Oct 082021

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.
