First published in 2002, this was one of the first handbooks to focus on the practical application of skills including consultation aimed specifically at medical students and newly-qualified juniors and is extremely well thought of, both in the UK and internationally. This long-awaited revision remains readable, concise and pocket-sized, while being thoroughly updated to reflect the latest requirements of these groups including consent, confidentiality & record keeping, with new chapters on Prescribing and Skills in general practice, procedures reflecting the latest Core Curriculum, and online video material to help students put their acquired skills into effective clinical practice.
