As a trainee ACP this is my new best friend.
The only way I will put it down is if I am surgically removed from it.
After 20 years of being HIV CNS etc, it has been a challenge becoming a generalist again. This holds my hand and guides me through.
Its very helpful to have systems by chapter and then symptoms, signs, history, examination and investigations, with some consideration to medications.
Also questions posed to make you think.
The visuals and charts help you learn more easily and fluidly.
Virtually every ACP I know has this now and we can't praise it enough.
Its not the only thing I use, as NICE guidance is also imperative but this book is a brilliant pairing with National guidance.
I thought I had put on weight during lockdown, turns out it was just the book as permanent resident in my hand :)
