Hutchison’s Clinical Methods: An Integrated Approach to Clinical Practice 24th Edition (PDF); first published more than a century ago; is the classic etextbook on clinical skills. It provides an outstanding source of learning and reference for postgraduate doctors and undergraduate medical students. It seeks to teach an integrated approach to clinical practice; so that new investigations and methods are grafted onto established patterns of clinical practice; rather than added on as something extra. The textbook is organised so that both system-related and problem-oriented chapters are included. Particular emphasis is placed on the importance of the patient-doctor relationship; the essential skills needed for clinical examination; and for planning the appropriate choice of investigations in management and diagnosis. Hutchison’s Clinical Methods is an invaluable resource for all those training and learning in medicine and is an essential adjunct to a standard etextbook of surgery; medicine; or other specialty.
- The PDF ebook provides a comprehensive account of the traditional methods of patient history-taking and examination but is updated with a full account of the role of modern investigative techniques.
- This is a book for medical students of all ages and all degrees of experience.
- This established etextbook of clinical methods has been thoroughly reviewed by an international group of students and trainee doctors to ensure the text concentrates on the basic principles of history and examination in all the various clinical settings which medical students need to master.
- The global perspective of the book has been enhanced with a new International Advisory Board recruited from South Asia and the Middle East.
