Overview

Lecture Notes on Clinical Skills (formerly known as Lecture Notes on History Taking and Examination) is a core text that introduces the basic principles of: how to take a complete history, how to examine a patient thoroughly, how to request the most appropriate investigations, and how to put all of this together and come to a diagnosis. Rather than being a peripheral aspect of a trainee's education, it is now appreciated that the acquisition and application of these skills is now of paramount importance. The revised title and improved illustrations, with full colour photographs, stress the highly practical nature of this book, which is now established as a firm favourite of medical students, junior doctors and allied health professionals.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.
