History Taking: Key Role Play for OSCEs

Doctors spend a considerable part of their professional life taking history from patients. It is thus important for it to be done well. Obtaining a good history is essential towards arriving at the correct diagnosis but taking a good history requires a lot of practice: ‘History Taking: Key Role Play for OSCEs’ aims to provide the student with essential information for taking a concise history. The book, written by junior doctors and principally intended for medical students, is a series of role plays presented in a systematic way to consolidate and internalise the student’s learning process, and practise some common scenarios. Whilst it is important to read and revise alone, there are many benefits of working with others: Practising in pairs or groups enhances the communication and inter-personal skills, while also bringing variety to the student’s revision schedule.
