EMQs are a popular method of assessing how broad a knowledge of medicine an undergraduate has acquired. They can, however, be difficult to prepare for, and the best way to build understanding and confidence is with practice. Presenting 100 key EMQs covering the core areas of medicine and surgery, care had been taken by the authors to structure the questions and answers so that they reflect accurately the themes uncountered during study and, specifically, in final exams. Each subject covered is accompanied by a revision section which summarises key points and cross references them to other questions for revision purposes. Questions related to pharmacology, an area which many students find particularly challenging, are threaded throughout the book where relevant, mirroring the integrated teaching methods common to most medical schools. The second edition of EMQs in Clinical Medicine has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect medical developments, while retaining the clear and comprehensive approach and popular revision boxes of its predecessor. The authors' first-hand experience of EMQ-based examinations, and awareness of the importance of reliable and accurate revision guides to medical students, ensure EMQs in Clinical Medicine remains and invaluable resource for all medical students undertaking the clinical part of their training, and an ideal companion during finals preparation.

Food and nutrients are the original medicine and the shoulders on which modern medicine stands. But in recent decades, food and medicine have taken divergent paths and the natural healing properties of food have been diminished in the wake of modern technical progress.

Guided by Dr. Kohlstadt, this authoritative reference equips clinicians with the information they need to fully utilize nutritional medicine in their practice.

Worldwide economic constraints on health care systems have highlighted the importance of evidence-based medicine and evidence-based health policy. The resulting clinical trials and health services research studies require instruments to monitor the outcomes of care and the output of the health system. However, the over-abundance of competing measurement scales can make choosing a measure difficult at best. Measuring Health provides in-depth reviews of over 100 of the leading health measurement tools and serves as a guide for choosing among them.LNow in its third edition, this book provides a critical overview of the field of health measurement, with a technical introduction and discussion of the history and future directions for the field. This latest edition updates the information on each of the measures previously reviewed, and includes a complete new chapter on anxiety measurement to accompany the one on depression. It has also added new instruments to those previously reviewed in each of the chapters in the book.LChapters cover measurements of physical disability, social health, psychological well-being, anxiety, depression, mental status testing, pain, general health status and quality of life. Each chapter presents a tabular comparison of the quality of the instruments reviewed, followed by a detailed description of each method, covering its purpose and conceptual basis, its reliability and validity and, where possible, shows a copy of the actual scale. To ensure accuracy of the information, each review has been approved by the original author of each instrument or by an acknowledged expert.
