Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Robert E. Rakel, MD (Baylor College of Medicine)
Description: This paperback book on the medical interview is divided into two major sections. The first is a discussion of the fundamentals of basic clinical interviewing and various components of the medical history. The second shows application of these basics to difficult interviewing situations, including barriers to communication, and interviewing in pediatrics, geriatrics, and managed care encounters.
Purpose: It is intended to serve as a guide for those just learning to take a medical history, primarily medical students and allied health students.
Audience: Although its targeted audience is medical students beginning to interact with patients and learning the basics of medical interviewing, this book also will be useful for physician assistant and nurse practitioner students. The book will be of some value to those further along in their education and in practice as well.
Features: Theory is interspersed with excellent examples of doctor-patient interviews to illustrate the points being made. It is presented in a two-color format and the layout is attractive and easy to read. Excellent quotes begin each chapter. A summary (in red) is at the end of each chapter. Tables and illustrations are well presented and moderate in number.
Assessment: This is the third edition that presents basic interviewing skills for the health professions student who is just learning to interact with patients. The layout and format are attractive. Theory is supplemented by scripts from doctor-patient interviews. This useful book for medical and other health professions students is recommended to medical libraries.
