Talley and O’Connor’s Clinical Examination addresses the core principles and clinical skills that underpin diagnosis for safe, effective medical practice.
The text takes an evidence-based, patient-centric approach to conducting a clinical examination. In Volume 1, readers follow a logical framework ordered by body system, covering history taking, clinical examination and correlation between physical signs and disease for each system. Volume 2 focuses on medical specialties.
Originally written by Nicholas J Talley and Simon O’Connor during their registrar years, this book is uniquely targeted to students undertaking their MD or MBBS and is fully updated with the latest clinical data, including specially commissioned research.
