This title presents essential examination skills practice. Practical Assessment of Clinical Examination Skills (PACES) is a demanding and difficult examination; with examiners looking for safe; competent doctors suitable for higher specialist training. The secret to success is a thorough knowledge of clinical examination and communication skills, which can then be applied to almost any situation you will encounter. Careful preparation is therefore essential as you are being tested on both examination technique and presentation skills. This book is divided into the same 5 sections as PACES. Each section begins with guidance on generic skills applicable to that particular area before covering the essential cases commonly encountered by candidates. Preparation is key; once proficient in all these skills and cases, you are unlikely to be surprised in the exam. This new edition offers chapters covering all five PACES stations - Abdominal and Respiratory; History-taking Skills; Cardiovascular and Neurology; Communication Skills and Ethics; Eyes, Endocrine, Locomotor and Skin. There is a completely new chapter on History-taking. Hugely expanded and rewritten sections on all the clinical cases commonly encountered in the exam. There is a revamped section covering Communication and Ethics. Clinical images throughout to aid understanding.
