Summary

" ... well-structured with good "bullet" points, diagrams, and quality coloured pictures making it most easy to read. Overall, I considered this little gem a worthwhile possession for all trainees" - Postgraduate Medicine Journal

First published in 2002, this popular handbook focuses on the practical application of clinical skills aimed specifically at medical students and doctors in training. This much-anticipated second edition remains readable, concise and pocket-sized, while being extensively updated to reflect the latest learning requirements. Existing chapters, including an overview of the general examplination followed by chapters on examination specific to each body system, child healrth and mental health, are supplemented by the general practice consultation and a new chapter that brings the specialist clinical methods of previous chapters together and considers their application within and abbreviated timescale.

Key features:

• New edition of well-established and highly respected handbook focused on the needs of medical students and junior doctors

• Reflects the expansion of the traditional skills of history taking and clinical examination, whilst ensuring complete familiarity with and understanding of the ‘basics’

• Places the patient at the centre of care recognising that good, compassionate communication with patients and their relatives contributes to satisfactory clinical outcomes

• Video clips provide additional, illustrative guidance to good procedural practice – visit https://www.crcpress.com/cw/kopelman

The second edition of this classic handbook continues to provide brief, readable chapters on important skills, enhanced by supplementary videos to demonstrate how they can be mastered and how they may be applied.
