Features Fully revised for the new Station 5 and completely updated throughout. Promotes understanding and deeper learning of modern medicine applicable to PACES and the specialist registrar. Emphasis on clinical assessment – history-taking, examination and communication skills – equipping candidates with appropriate differential diagnoses from which to develop the right diagnosis. Encourages candidates to question why a diagnosis has arisen and consider its consequences. For example, ‘Heat failure’ is a not a diagnosis until a candidate has considered the differential diagnoses of breathlessness and decided why heart failure is most likely, and then considered its cause (not always ischaemic heart disease), its presentation (acute, chronic, left or right ventricular or both) and, most importantly, the effects of it and its treatments on a patient’s life. This 3rd edition of PACES for the MRCP continues to provide fully revised, up-to-date, evidence-based coverage of investigations and treatments. Whilst the emphasis of PACES is on clinical skills, candidates who understand when, for example, a patient with rheumatoid arthritis might benefit from a biologic agent and how this will influence inflammatory disease, is better equipped for success.

This book aims to demystify the subject, and help candidates avoid becoming bogged down in unnecessary detail and to clarify their thoughts and expression. The book is divided into three major sections covering areas of the body, each organised according to the possible instructions that candidates are likely to encounter in the exam. They include summaries of essential examination steps to be undertaken, possible clinical findings, brief discussions in question and answer format, and tips and pitfalls. Concise, clear and engaging, this is an essential aid for candidates preparing for the MRCP clinical neurology stations.
