Overview

Ready access to everything hospital clinicians need to hit the ground running

With hospital medicine growing rapidly in both scale and complexity, the learning curve for students is steeper, while experienced physicians are often called upon to act as mentors and caregivers in areas outside their primary fields of expertise. Becoming a Consummate Clinician, an exciting new book in the series Hospital Medicine: Current Concepts, describes in practical terms how clinicians and students can think more critically and act more insightfully in this era of information expansion and time compression.

Developed for hospital-based clinicians and physicians-in-training, the book provides a road map for navigating key challenges in real-life medical practice related to assessing, integrating, and presenting clinical information. Clearly formatted and easily accessible, the book:

  • Fully integrates and emphasizes error avoidance and reduction
  • Highlights uses and limitations of algorithmic and evidence-based medicine in medical decision-making
  • Details effective strategies for looking and "re-looking" at biomedical data
  • Explains essential do's and don'ts of medical practice, from patient history and exam to differential diagnoses
  • Describes best practices and pitfalls of gathering, processing, and communicating medical information
  • Presents strategies for attending physicians to develop the critical thinking skills of their trainees

Featuring real-world clinical examples, this concise, down-to-earth text is written to help both practitioners and students improve their overall clinical performance, and learn to communicate effectively with members of the caregiving team.

From the Publisher
“The encouragement of all readers to rethink everything we assume to be true and to seek a deeper understanding of what we “know” is priceless . . . The quotes included throughout the book were both valuable and enjoyable.”  (The Hospitalist, 2 November 2014)
