9780199651665: Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine Eighth Edition and Oxford Assess and Progress Clinical Medicine Pack (Oxford Medical Handbooks)

The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine Eighth Edition and the Oxford Assess and Progress: Clinical Medicine are bundled together in a pack that represents excellent value, and will take readers from their final examinations throughout their Foundation Programme and into the first few years as a junior doctor.
As ubiquitous in hospitals as stethoscopes, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine is a guiding star for all medical students, junior doctors, and trainees. The culmination of more than 20 years' clinical experience, and containing the knowledge and insight gained by more than 15 authors, the eighth edition continues to be the definitive pocket-sized guide to today's clinical medicine.
Packed with clear, clinical management advice which is practical to implement at the bedside, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine is written in a clear and didactic style. With witty, esoteric asides linking medicine to everything from the classics to popular culture, all the material is presented in a way that is instantly memorable and even easier to put into practice.
With extensive improvements based on reader feedback, the new eighth edition boasts even more full-colour images, which are now larger to improve their clarity and ease-of-use. Mindful of how doctors' training is constantly evolving, a new chapter on 'history and examination' explores this relevant critical skill in depth, enabling you to elicit as much information from the patient as possible. An expanded radiology chapter features improved images, and new topics are devoted to new cancers such as nosocomial infections, and further common surgical procedures. The references have been thoroughly overhauled with 'key references' identifying the best places to start when researching the subject, and all references are fully accessible via the supporting website.
Loved and trusted by generations of doctors, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine is a reassuring beacon of wisdom, knowledge, and skills that is forever in your sights.

Oxford Assess and Progress is a new and unique revision resource for medical students written and edited by clinicians and educational experts. Medical students will benefit from a comprehensive selection of Single Best Answer Questions and Extended Matching Questions designed to test understanding and application of core medical topics. Key professional themes such as decision making, communication, and ethics are also teased out to ensure complete revision coverage.

Oxford Assess and Progress: Clinical Medicine doesn't simply reveal the correct or wrong answer. Readers are directed to further revision material via detailed feedback on why the correct answer is best, and references to the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine and resources such as journal articles. Ideal companions to the best-selling Oxford Handbooks, these excellent self-assessment guides can also be used entirely independently. Each question is rated out of four possible levels of difficulty, from medical student to junior doctor. Carefully compiled and reviewed to ensure quality, students can rely on the Oxford Assess and Progress series to prepare for their exams.

Review from previous edition: "Now in its sixth edition, the 'Cheese and Onion' (as it is known) continues to be the most popular handbook for both the undergraduate and the junior doctor on the wards... The reason this little book remains so popular is that most topics are covered succinctly
on a two-page spread of the book, and coloured headings break up the text and provide a logical structure for readers of all levels. Not only has the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine aided in the diagnosis and treatment of countless patients, it has also helped thousands of students prepare and
pass examinations. Size isn't everything, and that certainly is true here. Common clinical questions are answered clearly and extensively, while weird and wonderful conditions, which are rarely encountered, also get a good crack at the whip. They say the proof is in the pudding, and the fact that
this book has sold more than a million copies worldwide speaks volumes"


"This handbook goes from strength to strength...[staying] abreast of the breathtaking advances in clinical practice...it can take rough handling and is ideal for junior hospital doctors, medical students and GPs...it's packed with practical, easy-to-read advice... it is a huge topic and a bold
task to cover it in such a small portable volume but...it manages this admirably well...packed with facts, knowledge and...is an intensely practical book. If you are stuck on what to do next in managing a patients, this is the book...there is no padding here...it is a very modern, relevant and
highly readable format...superb value for money."

--Dr Harry Brown September 2010

--Vincent F Carr Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences

"...well formatted and beautifully presented...what impresses me most...is the attention given arguably to the most agonising and difficult matters in medicine. These are ethical and philosophical ideals...a truly indispensable medical gem. Every doctor should have ready access to this small
