Oxford Handbook for the Foundation Programme / Edition 5 available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- Oxford University Press
The Oxford Handbook for the Foundation Programme returns in a new edition to keep junior doctors, as well as their supervisors and senior medical students, up-to-date and give them the information and confidence they need to excel during and beyond the Foundation Programme.
This new edition has been fully revised to take in the latest guidelines, the new junior doctors' contract, and the most recent Foundation Programme curriculum. It has new sections to demystify the NHS structure and explore key changes in social care and the interface with the NHS, and revised key information on the medical certificate of the cause of death, the role of the medical examiner, and changes to interactions with the coroner, as well as a new standalone chapter on Psychiatry.
The junior doctor's pocket mentor, this handbook distils the knowledge of four authors across multiple NHS environments in an easy access format, covering everything from practical guidance at the patient's bedside to aspects of adapting to day-to-day life as a junior doctor that are rarely covered in medical school.
With this indispensable survival guide to the Foundation Programme, you need never be alone on the wards again.
