Designed specifically for busy health professionals working in primary care, The Naked Consultation: A Practical Guide to Primary Care Consultation Skills covers all aspects of the primary care consultation in a clear, concise, and highly readable manner.
The book begins by breaking the primary care consultation into its components, making it easier to focus on particular areas and practise skills such as encouraging patients to explain what’s wrong, summarising and reflecting, and giving information to patients. The book then describes how to effectively use educational tools—such as videoing, random case analysis, problem case debriefing, and feedback—to improve consultations. It also explains in detail how to demonstrate proficient consultation skills in the Membership of the Royal College of General Practitioners (MRCGP) exam and the importance of these skills in appraisal/revalidation.
Certified for continuing professional development (CPD®) by The CPD Certification Service, this fully updated and revised Second Edition incorporates new thinking and consultation models, including the 6 S model and the new doctor, patient, illness model. It also provides detailed analysis of the latest Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) assessment tools, such as the clinical skills assessment exam (CSA) and the consultation observation tool (COT).
“Our health service is facing unprecedented changes and the pace of change seems to increase year on year. … Still one thing remains constant: the helping nature of the human contact between clinician and patient that empowers the patient. This is the subject of Liz’s book, a book that I would advise those new to general practice to read and those experienced in our art to re-read. … This book will, I believe, enable you to understand your interactions with patients better and, amidst the ever-changing context and environment, ensure you have the skills you need for effective consultations.”
“This charming book has a contemporary style which sets it apart from other consultation books. This is a must read for those aiming to pass the CSA exam comfortably. Its charm is in its easy-to-read pages with chapters listed as buzz words that are used in marking schemes for COT and CSA assessments. It consists of two parts: ‘Part 1: Deconstructing the Consultation’ and ‘Part 2: Tools and Techniques for Learning and Improving Consultation Skills,’ with an appendix ‘jargon buster’ at the end. This book was showcased by the recent RCGP Consultation Skills and Reducing Risk Workshop, and with good reason, in my opinion.”
