Uniquely combining video and book content, How to Perform Clinical Procedures presents vital information in a clear and practical manner from experienced clinicians, detailing many of the core procedures medical students and junior doctors are likely to encounter on the wards.

The DVDs contain over 40 of the most common practical procedures, demonstrated on real patients in real clinical scenarios with step-by-step explanations and points highlighted for OSCEs and PACES. Each procedure also features an on-screen OSCE scoring sheet for self-testing.

The accompanying book also presents each procedure in detail, mirroring the videos, with the addition of indications, contraindications, complications and tips.

With a foreword by Sir Richard Thompson, President of the Royal College of Physicians, How to Perform Clinical Procedures is a thorough and methodical companion to clinical training to help you improve your skills, and make the most of your formative years as a clinician.
