Product description

The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine has entered the hearts, minds and pockets of doctors and medical students the world over. Now in its 7th edition, the main features and essence of the original edition remain unchanged. Developed over 21 years, the Handbook encompasses the experience, knowledge and wisdom of more than 10 different authors. With its characteristic combination of incisive guidance, wit, a lucid style, and memorable epigrams, it continues to be the leading pocket reference of clinical medicine. The 7th edition is fully equipped for the modern doctor with a brand new design with integrated full-colour pictures on common problems such as rashes, scars and jaundice. There is a new chapter on radiology and new information on consent and how to handle common calls. The epidemiology chapter has been revised in line with the undergraduate curriculum and there is greater coverage of medications and doses, clinical skills and surgery. There are also numerous other updates and improvements throughout, many suggested by extensive market research and reader feedback.Three new junior co-authors have been brought on board to ensure that the content reflects what readers really need. The latest Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine is just what the doctor ordered and is now available in three formats: main edition, PDA and mini, so you will never be without your trusted, flexicover friend.

Review quote

Doctors often have this small handbook in their pockets, and nurses in specialist roles would benefit from doing the same. Highly recommended. Nursing Standard Even after 20 years in print, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine remains unchallenged as a first point of reference for medical students and junior doctors, and the Mini Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine is one step better. Cambridge Medicine, 21(2)
