Abstract

Now in its ninth edition, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine continues to be the definitive guide to medicine. The culmination over 25 years of experience at the bedside and in the community, this resource is packed with practical advice, wit, and wisdom. It presents clinical information in a clear way that makes it easy to revise, remember, and implement on the ward. It gives reliable advice on what to do, and when and how to do it, with clinical photographs and diagrams that bring theory to life. Uniquely, it weaves history, literature, art, and philosophy into its survey of medicine, casting new light on the specialties and encouraging the reader to see beyond the practical aspects of medicine and adopt a patient-centred approach to care. With a more modern design and over 600 colour images and illustrations, this title has been completely revamped with systematic flowcharts and new illustrations so that it better reflects real bedside practice and is easier to use. Every chapter has been composed with supervision from experts in each field to ensure accuracy, and updated to reflect relevant guidelines from the NHS, NICE, the Resuscitation Council, and other key professional bodies.
