What distinguishes the consulting of experienced family doctors from their newly qualified colleagues? The question is often frustratingly hard answer clearly or objectively: unlike many professions, family doctors face a dearth of clear expectations of what constitutes advanced practice, a lack of defined standards against which to evaluate it, and an absence of expertise-related professional training in which to develop it post-certification. The model of consultation excellence outlined in this book illustrates in practical terms how advanced consulting can be nurtured. It avoids tantalising value judgement such as 'excellence'. Instead, it describes behaviours in terms that can be observed day to day, providing a detailed picture of what constitutes advanced consulting behaviour, how family doctors can be helped to acquire these higher levels of expertise, and how changes in behaviour can be identified and evaluated. "Advanced Consulting in Family Medicine" is written in handbook form for easy access and use, and provides a vital vision of higher order family doctor consulting.

The Clinical Skills Assessment (CSA) of the new Membership of the Royal College of General Practice (nMRCGP) examinations can be a daunting test: candidates face assessment on an unknown situation by a 'patient' and assessor, however, help is at hand. This book has been written by a CSA examiner in concert with GP training programme members to help candidates approach the exam feeling prepared, calm and in control. It includes advice on preparation, consultation skills, how the assessment is marked, and 12 practice CSA cases, along with advice on how candidates can create cases with which to practise and assess each other. Clear, practical, and based on sound knowledge and proven techniques, this book will be essential reading for nMRCGP CSA candidates. 'Rhona is a passionate and compassionate educator with a strong sense of natural justice, and also a long-standing MRCGP examiner. She has developed an approach to understanding and preparing for the Clinical Skills Assessment (CSA) that is already tried, tested and proven. An approach that will enhance the candidate's ability as a GP at the same time as preparing them for the CSA.' - Simon Gregory in his Foreword

Collaborations of physicians and researchers with industry can provide valuable benefits to society, particularly in the translation of basic scientific discoveries to new therapies and products. Recent reports and news stories have, however, documented disturbing examples of relationships and practices that put at risk the integrity of medical research, the objectivity of professional education, the quality of patient care, the soundness of clinical practice guidelines, and the public's trust in medicine. Conflict of Interest in Medical Research, Education, and Practice provides a comprehensive look at conflict of interest in medicine. It offers principles to inform the design of policies to identify, limit, and manage conflicts of interest without damaging constructive collaboration with industry. It calls for both short-term actions and long-term commitments by institutions and individuals, including leaders of academic medical centers, professional societies, patient advocacy groups, government agencies, and drug, device, and pharmaceutical companies. Failure of the medical community to take convincing action on conflicts of interest invites additional legislative or regulatory measures that may be overly broad or unduly burdensome. Conflict of Interest in Medical Research, Education, and Practice makes several recommendations for strengthening conflict of interest policies and curbing relationships that create risks with little benefit. The book will serve as an invaluable resource for individuals and organizations committed to high ethical standards in all realms of medicine.
