Description

Pocket Tutor Clinical Examination helps you develop this wide range of skills. The first two chapters outline the general principles of structuring a consultation, taking a history and conducting an examination. Approaches to forming a differential diagnosis and following up a consultation are included, along with ethicolegal considerations and a summary of the relevance of evidence-based medicine to clinical skills. Ten systems-based chapters then follow, each one starting with a recap of key anatomy and physiology before describing system-specific symptoms and signs. Subsequent discussion of clinical examination guides you through the most commonly used techniques. Each systems chapter closes with a summary of common investigations likely to be requested as a result of positive examination findings, along with a summary table.
