By Joshua Michaels
Feb 2018 , 166 pp
The purpose of the clinical history, specifically during a clinical exam, which is a high pressure and intense situation, is to provide the examiner with an insight into your thought process. This book shows you how to achieve this by showing you how to ask the right questions, demonstrating you are SAFE and competent.
History Taking for Medical Finals uses a standard structure and a set number of questions for each presenting complaint to act as an absolute failsafe. The book uses a repetitive and consistent structure to reinforce the key techniques of history taking. Each scenario covers all the necessary aspects of the history for each presenting complaint and all the red flags are highlighted.
