Clinical assessment is at the heart of medicine. Health professionals working in busy clinical settings, such as general practitioners, emergency physicians, nurse practitioners and hospital doctors on-call, often have to quickly, accurately and safely clinically assess patients under time constraints. This book teaches the reader how to gather clinical information effectively, accurately and safely. Using a focused, evidence-based approach, it provides step-by-step assessment strategies for common and important clinical scenarios particularly those that require ‘lateral’ and holistic thinking such as falls in the elderly, weight loss, ‘tired all the time’, or assessment of diabetic or homeless people. 

This second edition of The 10-Minute Clinical Assessment is fully updated and covers a wide range of common topics, including cardiovascular, respiratory, haematology, musculoskeletal, neurology, mental health, gynaecology, obstetrics, urology, ophthalmology and ear, nose and throat. It also includes sections on undifferentiated and miscellaneous presentations, and on paediatrics and adolescent health, and problems in older people. Each of the individual disease sections are uniformly structured to provide rapid reference, including: 

Key features of the history, including questions relevant to patients and important for making a diagnosis:

  1. The ‘value’ of present or absent symptoms for diagnosis and prognosis
  2. What should be examined and why
  3. A summary of ‘red flags’ – issues that must be assessed
  4. Important differential diagnoses and their clinical features
  5. Useful tips, tricks and hints for effective patient assessment 

Written by an experienced medical educator and practicing GP, in consultation with a multidisciplinary team of medical students, GPs, PG trainees, hospital doctors and nurses, this title specifically covers the clinical skills assessment (CSA) part of the Membership of the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) examination.

New to this edition is a refreshed approach to the methodology employed in clinical assessment to reflect recent trends in the teaching of clinical assessment. This edition also includes the latest evidence based recommendations and recent developments to provide the reader with a concise yet comprehensive resource for clinical reference.

Our platform wants to centralise resources. Addressing all your needs as a student…

To achieve this we need your help! Please share with us any resources you find useful, and feel other healthcare students should be aware of. Share as many as you possibly can.

Please include a link to the website where the resource can be accessed, and a brief description of why you are recommending we include it in our resource section.
These can be resources for study, or more supportive resources e.g. mindfulmedic.co.uk. But it can also be links to good sites to access cheaper equipment needed as a student e.g. Medisave.co.uk. Or even places that do awesome student discounts… 

In other words share with us all the awesome things you wished were shared with you much earlier than they were!
