This book is an excellent resource for medical students of all years. It addresses two of the most important and essential aspects in clinical practice – undertaking clinical procedures and effective communication skills. Whilst a number of books provide factual knowledge, there is a paucity of resources that cover the aforementioned areas. This book covers the practical aspects for undertaking a clinical procedure in a step-by-step manner. Each procedure is broken down into sections to help focus on the various stages of performing it. The chapter starts from the initial gathering of the thought process, the purpose of the procedure, the equipment and the set-up required, undertaking the procedure, and finally the potential complications. For some procedures the pertinent theory is also summarised. The book also covers some of the common communication scenarios that the students frequently find challenging. These include stations on difficult consultation, breaking bad news, information giving and information gathering, and consenting for surgical and invasive procedures. At the end of the each scenario, a fact file is provided to help consolidate the student’s understanding of the topic.
