Assuming no prior medical education, but encouraging you to think scientifically and analytically in your approach to patients' presenting symptoms, Chris Mulryan takes you step-by-step through the examination of each body system, illustrating clearly and accessibly a practical model of assessment.
To help strengthen your skills and knowledge base further, each chapter also includes:
- an overview of key symptoms, with a red and yellow flag system to highlight those that require specific and often immediate attention;
- case examples of the most-commonly occurring patient presentations;
- multiple choice and OSCE questions and answers, along with clear learning objectives and outcomes, so that you can audit your developing examination and assessment skills.
