Part of the Masterpass series, Focused clinical Assessment in 10 Minutes for MRCGP is the definitive study guide for GP trainees at any stage of their specialist training, in particular, those preparing for the CSA. This comprehensive yet straightforward book provides a unique structure for the focused clinical assessment and a new approach to the management of everyday problems encountered in general practice, in 10 minutes. It bridges the gap between consultation theory and the real world; combining language, motivation, knowledge and empathy, enabling GP trainees to gather information, organise their thoughts, pinpoint a diagnosis and communicate this to both patient and examiner.
