The Art of General Practice
From reviews:"This little book is well written and has a pleasant,informal style… The first part of the book covers what [the author] calls thesoft skills, but what could be called the social skills required to make theconsultation work most successfully… This section might be ideal for a trainerwith a trainee facing clinical skills assessment.… The second part of the book tries to encourage and enablethe career GP to look after themselves. Again, well written, it is full ofuseful advice…. To sum up, a short book from which every GP might learn something." Br J Gen Pract, February 2019“At times nostalgic, but frequently emotional and sopositive, this book is an easy-access antidote to the calls for ‘resilience’and the anti-patient rhetoric that seems to appear all too commonly on social media,and is a well-timed reminder of why we do the job we do and how to do iteffectively.” Pulse, June 2018The Art of General Practice is a short text written by anexperienced GP and GP trainer. It is a book which will help focus the mind ofthe reader (GPs of all descriptions: young GPs, returners to general practiceand even jaded GPs) on what it means to be a GP. Too often general practicefocuses on guidelines, ever-changing targets, incentives or the academic sideof medicine and the art and craft of being a GP is forgotten.The book aims to redress the balance; it helps the reader refocus on theemotional intelligence needed to be a great GP. The book consists of a numberof short chapters so the busy GP can dip in and out of it as time allows – eachchapter helps the reader re-centre on the core skills and techniques needed tobe a great GP, and the benefits these skills will bring to both GPs andpatients alike.There is almost no medicine in this book; it is a book of life experiences,anecdotes and suggestions – all aimed to help you survive the increasingpressures of general practice and make your life as a GP more interesting andless stressful.
