Clinical Communication Skills

Edited by Peter Washer

Oxford Core Texts

  • Practical focus provides immediate benefit to readers.
  • This textbook on communication skills makes appropriately dynamic use of multi-media resources, consisting of 11 podcasts with real patients and doctors. This is the first such companion website in the clinical skills literature.
  • Discussion and theory is illustrated by extracts from podcast interviews, and by the inclusion of sample forms of written communication in medicine, including referral letters and case notes.
  • The book deals with communicating with colleagues as well as communicating with patients, including a particularly useful chapter on presenting patients, which some students find to be an intimidating experience.
