Life would be much simpler for GPs if patients presented with diagnoses. Unfortunately, patients instead present with symptoms that are frequently vague, sometimes multiple and often obscure. Most clinical texts adopt a diagnosis rather than a symptom based approach. Across its four editions, Symptom Sorter has redressed this balance, becoming an essential reference book in primary care. Covering over 100 of the symptoms most commonly found in primary care, this latest, fully updated edition features new entries including failure to thrive and febrile children, anxiety, hip and knee pain, and mouth lumps and marks, all explored through the 'red flags', 'top tips' and 'ready reckoner' format for sorting symptoms that has made previous editions so popular and respected. All general practitioners, especially GP trainers, GP registrars, young principals, nurse practitioners and A&E nurses will find this book an invaluable reference. From reviews of previous editions: 'Essential for all GPs, trainers and registrars. Great value and a superb practical book. Five stars!' DOCTOR 'This is the one book I would like to take into the consulting room.' LONDON CALLING 'If you have this book in your room, and you consult it every day, my guess is that you will do at least one thing better every day, and, maybe many more. If that is not a recommedation for a book, then I don't know what is.' WORK BASED LEARNING IN PRIMARY CARE 'A classic general practice book.' FAMILY MEDICINE 'A very useful reference tool. Very user friendly and informative. A valuable asset for any practice library. It is one of the most well used books on my shelf.' BEDS AND HERTS FACULTY NEWS ________________________________ Highly Commended - BMA Medical Book Awards 2004 (Second Edition) Commended - BMA Medical Book Awards 2008 (Third Edition)

The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Diagnosis is the first and only book that describes the diagnostic process clearly and logically so that it can be effectively learnt. It shows how to justify intuitive diagnoses clearly and logically in an evidence-based way. It provides the differential diagnosis of every symptom, physical sign and initial test result. This handbook uses 'pattern recognition tables' which enable the reader to scan the page to see which diagnostic explanation would apply best to a patient or case history. The book is aimed at medical students and others who wish to improve their diagnostic skills and interactions with patients. It describes how to justify diagnoses and management decisions verbally or in writing and clarifies what evidence is needed from research, and its statistical features. It provides senior doctors with a clear framework and examples help to teach trainees and students to approach diagnostic problems in a logical way and to effectively justify their opinions. It provides all doctors with practical help when dealing with problems outside their immediate field of expertise, especially general practitioners and those who are faced with unforeseen situations and emergencies.
