This title was highly commended (Basis of Medicine category) in the BMA Awards 2005. It presents a highly practical account of communication for medical students, backed up with numerous case histories. In addition to the clinical interview, the book covers other aspects of communication including how to promote healthy behaviour and the need for the doctor to work as part of the health care team.


This is a beautifully presented, easy-to-read, up to date, evidence-based, practical guide to communication skills. This can be a difficult subject to convey - and engage the reader - on paper but the subject is alive on these pages. To be recommended to anyone who communicates! BMA Awards, 2005
