Overview

Hutchison’s Clinical Methods, first published over a century ago, is the classic textbook on clinical skills. It provides an outstanding source of learning and reference for undergraduate medical students and postgraduate doctors. It seeks to teach an integrated approach to clinical practice, so that new methods and investigations are grafted onto established patterns of clinical practice, rather than added on as something extra. The text is organised so that both system-related and problem-oriented chapters are included. Particular emphasis is placed on the importance of the doctor-patient relationship, the essential skills needed for clinical examination, and for planning the appropriate choice of investigations in diagnosis and management.

• Provides a comprehensive account of the traditional methods of patient history-taking and examination but updated with a full account of the role of modern investigative techniques.
• A book for students of all ages and all degrees of experience.
• The most comprehensive account of clinical methods on the market.

• This long established textbook of clinical method has been thoroughly revised, with fewer chapters, so as to concentrate on the basic principles of history and examination in all the various clinical settings which medical students need to master.

• A new chapter concentrates on the assessment of patients presenting as emergencies.

• A new editorial team on this 23rd Edition maintains the highest standards of content and presentation.
