101 Things to Do with Spare Moments on the Ward
Author: Dason Evans, Nakul Patel
It can be scary and challenging experiencing the clinical environment for the first time as a student. But there are also times when there is nothing in particular to do.
Dason Evans and Nakul Patel offer a wide range of hints and tips to make the most of the clinical environment and enhance the learning experience.
The tips come from medical students and doctors who have found ways to improve their clinical skills and knowledge, but the information will be invaluable to all healthcare students, as well as experienced practitioners.
Chapters cover clinical skills, prescribing, teaching, learning and communication. As well as hints on how to become a good clinician, there are useful tips on how to survive socially too.
One of the key chapters discusses the importance of understanding the different roles within the clinical environment and, most importantly, developing good relationships with the nursing staff.
Should you find yourself with suggestions that are not in the book, you are invited to submit them at www.101things.org. The book itself features 100 ‘things to do’. Tip 101 is left up to the reader to explore his or her own ideas and share them with colleagues.
