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.See all Product Description

Thi9s book is really useful for revision or reference. Its a bit too bulky to take on the wards but I found it really useful for OSCE revision and exam practicePublished on 2 April 2013 by Zoeley
