Medical students often feel they understand the theory behind the clinical aspect of medicine but seldom have enough chance to put what they learn into practice. In addition, clinical examinations pose a challenge to students who may be technically and theoretically excellent, but who have poor examination technique. It is quite common for students to lack understanding of how they will be marked, how much emphasis to place upon certain actions or how much detail is expected of them. 'OSCE CASES WITH MARK SCHEMES' is intended to fill this gap. It provides OSCE mark schemes to reflect the real OSCE experience, by encouraging self assessment when practicing the clinical scenarios. The book includes chapters on communication skills, medical ethics, explanation stations, paediatrics and obstetrics and gynaecology subjects which are sometimes neglected elsewhere. All four authors have taken part in medical student teaching and OSCE examinations. They understand what will earn marks in the actual exam. All the OSCE scenarios are from stations previously examined in the UK's top medical schools. This book prepares the student for what the actual finals exam will be like. CONTENTS: SECTION ONE, COMMUNICATION STATIONS - Presenting Complaints - Psychiatry History Taking - Pediatrics History Taking - Obstetrics History Taking - Gynaecology History Taking - Medical Ethics - Difficult Communication Scenarios - Pharmacology - Consenting - Explanation of Management and Results SECTION TWO, PERFORMANCE STATIONS - Examination Skills - Practical Skills - Data Interpretation - Closing Remarks

'Dr Sharma has definitely mastered the art of producing a comprehensive, evidence-based review tool of core paediatric knowledge whilst at the same time appealing to a broad audience, which in my opinion is quite a remarkable achievement. You're definitely looking at an invaluable resource and buying this book will help you to rise up to the challenge that is the complexity of paediatrics.' - Tiago Villanueva in his Foreword. Undergraduate medical students often struggle with at least some of the specialty elements of their studies. Some face a further challenge with the advent of the Medical Schools Council Assessment Alliance (MSC-AA, formerly known as UMAP), with a move away from testing specific clinical facts to an assessment focused on preparing to be a foundation doctor and the knowledge such a trainee needs on a daily basis. Neel Sharma has written three self-assessment books - on psychiatry, obstetrics and gynaecology, and paediatrics - designed to help students tackle both the new form of assessment as well as the traditional style of examination. Questions covering all common presentations are included in SBA and EMQ formats with relevant, concise explanations as answers.
Good Practice is a course for doctors and medical students who need to communicate with patients in English, and can be used in the classroom or for self-study.

The course teaches learners how to sensitively handle a range of situations such as taking a patient history, breaking bad news, examining a patient and describing treatment options, as well as preparing doctors for dealing with different types of patients, from children to the elderly. With reference to numerous medical communication experts, and through exposure to authentic clinical scenarios, the course demonstrates the impact of good communication on the doctor-patient relationship and enables students to become confident and effective practitioners in English. The Teacher's Book is an invaluable tool for anyone wishing to use Good Practice in the classroom.
