Case-Based Discussions in Medicine
Case-based learning is a fundamental part of teaching at medical school because it links theory to practice. Case-Based Discussions in Medicine is designed to help prepare students for clinical practice by working through authentic cases.
All cases are presented in a consistent style, and cover:
• History of presenting complaint
• Examination and interpretation
• Differential diagnoses
• Diagnosis and management
Each case concludes with background information covering the pathophysiology, diagnostic criteria and clinical guidelines.
The book is a study companion for medical students and foundation doctors and will help you:
• become proficient at writing up a patient’s history and examination findings
• improve your clinical decision-making and patient management
• build your clinical knowledge
From back pain and breathlessness to post-partum psychosis, via abdominal pain and jaundice, placenta praevia, and alcoholic liver disease, the book guides you through common cases in medicine, surgery, obstetrics and gynaecology, paediatrics and psychiatry.
