Sir Robert Hutchison first published his textbook on Clinical Methods in 1897 and this latest edition maintains its reputation as the go-to guide to learn the core skills every clinician needs in their everyday practice.
Medical students and doctors in training will find essential guidance to taking a full history, examining a patient and interpreting the findings. They will learn the art of understanding, contextualising, communicating and explaining, with the doctor-patient relationship firmly at the centre of their practice. These skills remain essential for every doctor, in addition to modern investigative methods.
The book covers basic principles, different patient groups and all the main body systems. Each chapter includes relevant clinical methods and offers guidance for appropriate investigations. New methods and investigations are incorporated into established patterns of clinical practice to offer a fully integrated approach.
This award-winning textbook remains as relevant today as ever and will be treasured by doctors at all levels of training and practice as an outstanding source of learning and reference.
- 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.
- The book begins with a group of chapters that describe the overall approach to a patient, the general clinical examination together with ethical considerations, and includes a new chapter on differential diagnosis.
- The second section of chapters groups together the clinical methods relevant to particular patient groups such as the elderly, the young, and those presenting in emergency situations, with fever and those in pain.
- The third section of ten chapters covers the assessment of the basic systems together with the key clinical specialties including skin, eyes and ENT.
