Book Description

March 2007 185775736X 978-1857757361 1
Now a key component of undergraduate medical study, Problem Based Learning (PBL) is an exercise in the process of exploring medical problems and becoming efficient at finding solutions. This can be thought of as learning how to learn about medicine. "The Problem-Based Learning Workbook: Medicine and Surgery" is completely up-to-date. Written by consultants, registrars, house officers and medical students, it uses symptom-based scenarios to comprehensively explore a range of issues with which students need to be familiar with to evolve into competent medical practitioners. It expands the scope of traditional short answer question books, making them relevant to contemporary PBL courses. The scenarios encourage students to identify key features in the history, examination, investigation, and management of common medical problems. They ensure the importance of multidisciplinary management, community and social care, the psychological aspects of disease, and ethical issues surrounding patient care are well understood. To aid comprehension, teaching notes and answers, cross references, further information and web resources are included for each problem - ideal for giving insight into future professional life. "The past century has seen an extraordinary development in techniques for investigation, treatment and prevention of disease. This means that there has been a major change in the content of the undergraduate medical curriculum. The teaching of medicine has now caught up with this rapid and continuing evolution in medical practice with the introduction of problem based learning. This could be thought of as getting medical students to learn how to learn about medicine, in the knowledge that they are going to have to continue to learn, and thus adapt their practice of medicine until the day they retire." - Tim French and Terry Wardle, in the Introduction. "An excellent resource. This is a refreshing multi-faceted book that gets students thinking about issues that will remain important throughout their careers. It has received an overwhelmingly positive response from my students." - Professor David Brigden. Professor of Health Science Education, University of Chester and PBL Tutor, University of Liverpool.
