The Oxford Handbook of CLinical Diagnosis is the first (and only book so far) to describe the diagnostic process clearly and logically so that it can be taught as opposed to 'absorbed' by imitation in a hit and miss way. The book helps medical students and others who wish to improve their diagnostic performance and to learn more about the diagnostic process. It can be used to arrive at diagnosis when actually seeing patients, and to choose tests and initial treatments. It provides all doctors with practical help when dealing with problems that are outside their immediate field of expertise, especially general practitioners and those who may have to deal with unselected, unexpected emergencies. It also describes the logical and mathematical basis of diagnosis so that it can be made evidence-based.
