Product Description

Review

This book is a terrific guide for medical students when taking a patient's history. The common clinical problems are an excellent resource to enable them to build their confidence and formulate a plan when taking a history. --4th year medical student - Leeds University.

From the Publisher

Each chapter describes the types of questions that the doctor or student should enquire about when taking the history from a patient for a particular presenting complaint. That is not to say that all histories should conform to a definite, consistent structure every time, but rather it highlights the sort of information that should be gathered from the patient, either through open-ended discussion, or through direct questioning, in order to reach a correct diagnosis. Indeed, history taking should still be seen as a fluid patient-led, doctor-steered exercise that cannot be learnt in a robotic fashion. However, this book would be particularly useful in examination preparation, in addition to being a useful adjunct on the wards, as in the former high-pressured scenario the student or doctor is usually expected to make a rapid diagnosis, based on the history alone, in just a few minutes. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
I recently used history taking in medicine and surgery for my medical and surgical finals. I found it extremely useful. I am about to start work as a FY1 and having used this book i feel a lot more confident. I recommend this book to all medical students. It a great way to prepare for exams and it is one of those books that i shall be keeping rather than getting rid of now my exams are over.

I thoroughly recommend this book to final year medical students preparing for exams or for medical students new to clinical practice. A book like this has been long waited for - it's a shame no one produced a book like this sooner. At around 14 quid it's a real bargain!

This book is invaluable for revision for medical school exams and is an extremely useful aid for use on the wards. I wouldn't have passed my recent exams without it! This book should be an essential part of any medical student's library collection.

If you want to learn how to take a really good history, this is your book!! You will still need to observe your seniors and practise regularly but this book is the best I have come across for helping you to take a well structured and thorough history with a wide (but not ludicrously wide) differential.
