The Medical Interview: Gateway to the Doctor-Patient Relationship
CRC Press, 15. mar. 1999 - 164 sider
This is an enlarged, revised new edition of one of the most widely adopted of all textbooks on the medical interview. Immensely popular among both students and teachers for clinical methods coursework and for physician assistant and similar courses in allied health programs, Professor C. Knight Aldrich's The Medical Interview: Gateway to the Doctor-Patient Relationship is ideally suited for all healthcare courses on this subject. This second edition updates and expands upon the author's original text, this time setting the sample interview in the hospital instead of the nursing home to better reflect actual practice, and including a new chapter on pain, its frequency as a symptom, the difficulty in measuring it, how to help the patient describe it, and the importance of taking what the patient says seriously. Other chapters cover the patient, illness and disease, medical interviewing technique, history-taking, a sensitive interview, the doctor-patient relationship, grief and tears and hope, mind-body interaction, and special situations. Includes bibliographic references and index. Highly recommended as a popular, established textbook.
