It deals with the health history, common and important symptoms, and the assessment of mental status.

Review quote

"The manual is user-friendly, with top tips emphasising communication and listening to the patient. It touches on so many of today's key issues such as falls, abuse of older people, child protection, the national service frameworks and the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence. There is a particularly good section on mental health.? 5/5 - Excellent
