A.C.E.S for P.A.C.E.S.

Advanced Clinical Evaluation System for

Practical Assessment of Clinical

Examination Skills

DR. AJITH JAYASEKERA

M.B., B.S. (Colombo, Sri Lanka) M.R.C.P. (U.K.)

This book presents a pragmatic approach to clinical method that is suitable for day-to-day practice and for professional examinations both undergraduate and postgraduate.

It provides a comprehensive method of history taking, physical examination and communication.

It also provides a classification of pathological states that may involve the major organ systems of the body so that one may collate knowledge in order to facilitate recall.

Next, it lists the major findings that may be encountered during history taking and physical examination and lists the causes of these findings. This will enable the student to visualise clinical scenarios and use this to learn clinical medicine and prepare for examinations and clinical practice.

This book is primarily intended for candidates undertaking the MRCP part 2 clinical examination; the MRCP PACES.  The approach taken by this book is different to the approach taken by the books currently available for the MRCP PACES and would compliment these books very nicely.

The standard approach taken by most books that are designed for the MRCP PACES examination is a case based approach. These books list the cases that are likely to appear in the MRCP PACES examination and then describe the clinical features that occur in these cases and discuss the questions that are likely to be asked and provide suitable answers.

This book differs from other books designed for the MRCP PACES examination. It first discusses the examination then goes through clinical methods in extensive detail and finally lists the likely abnormalities that may be detected in cases appearing in the MRCP PACES examination and discusses their causes. This will help the candidate to replicate the situation faced in the MRCP PACES examination and allow virtual practice for the MRCP PACES examination.

In addition to candidates undertaking the MRCP PACES examination, candidates undertaking other clinical examinations such as medical finals, M.B., B.S., M.B., Ch.B., PLAB, USMLE, MD, DM, FCPS will find this book useful.

Clinicians hoping to improve their clinical skills will also find this book an useful addition to their personal libraries.
