Skills for Communicating with Patients, Third Edition is one of two companion books on improving communication in medicine, which together provide a comprehensive approach to teaching and learning communication skills throughout all levels of medical education in both specialist and family medicine. Since their publication, the first edition of this book and its companion, Teaching and Learning Communication Skills in Medicine, have become established standard texts in communication skills teaching throughout the world. This substantially expanded third edition has been fully updated in relation to the current literature and revised to reflect the explosion of research on healthcare communication. It incorporates considerable evidence in support of the skills of the Calgary-Cambridge Guides, offering a comprehensive and now even more evidence-based delineation of the skills that make a difference when communicating with patients. The book explores the specific skills of doctor-patient communication and provides wide-ranging evidence of the improvement that those skills can make to health outcomes and everyday clinical practice. It is unique in providing a secure platform of core skills which represent the foundations of doctor-patient communication.

Reviews from Amazon users which were colected at the time this book was published on the website:
⭐Concise text for learners and teachers of the Calgary Cambridge model. For the savvy
⭐Came as advertised, when advertised.
⭐you need to read the book!but communication is important in your job but also in personal life.Enjoy this reading
⭐Excessively wordy. One might presume that the authors, as experts in communication, might have checked their self-congratulatory approach briefly to have demonstrated the art of succinct, laconic, concise writing. Instead, they created a self-serving masterpiece puffing up few but important points into multiple chapters in an unnecessarily large manuscript for its scant and dilute “hard” content. One can hardly doubt that the author’s biggest fans were themselves. The style was pompous and long winded narration. I wanted the concise ten page version of the whole foamy thing. That could have been accomplished had the authors followed their own dictum to recognize a presumed collaboration with their audience, as well as the needs of the audience. An unmet need I had was to engage limited time in a high value manner. What would make it better is forcing the authors to do it over while containing their celebration of themselves – only this time make all their points in <2500 words. I'll give it two stars to be fair because the topics deserve serious exploration.. ⭐I bought this book as a course requirement. It is easy to read. ⭐This book provides a comprehensive approach to communicating with patients. It is quite long and involved but is well worth the effort of working through. ⭐ok ⭐Excellent quality and packaging ⭐Excellent book, very useful for developing communication skills.
