PACES for the MRCP with 250 clinical casesBy

  • Tim Hall, MB ChB FRCP MRCGP DipClinEd FHEA, Consultant in Geriatric Medicine and Acute and General (Internal) Medicine and Geriatric Medicine, Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust, South West Peninsula Deanery, Plymouth, UK

The 3rd edition of PACES for the MRCP has been fully revised and updated throughout to retain its pole position as the textbook to accompany core medical training (CMT) and prepare candidates for success in the Practical Assessment of Clinical Examination Skills and a future specialty career.

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.
