Electronic Inspection Copy available for instructors here 'As the fundamental importance of psychological aspects of medical practice becomes ever more evident, and a correspondingly greater knowledge of psychology is required of medical graduates by bodies such as the UK General Medical Council, books like this one must become essential reading for all medical students' - Michael Sharpe MD, FRCP FRCPsych, Professor of Psychological Medicine, Psychological Medicine Research, University of Edinburgh This first-of-its-kind, comprehensive textbook covers all the psychology an undergraduate medical student needs to know. The authors show the importance of applied psychological theory and evidence to medicine, and offer enough depth on the subject to span an entire degree. This book is a unique mix of psychological theory and evidence with implications for clinical practice, clinical tips and case studies. After an introduction, the text is split into four key sections that suit all curricula: * Psychology and Health covers core health psychology topics such as stress, symptom perception, health behaviour and chronic illness * Basic Foundations of Psychology covers topics from biological, developmental, cognitive and social psychology that are relevant to medicine * Body Systems covers psychological research specific to body systems, including cardiovascular, respiratory, gastro-intestinal, immunology and reproduction * Health-Care Practice covers clinical skills and practice, including chapters on evidence-based medicine, communication skills and psychological intervention. With a full colour text design, each chapter follows the same accessible format which includes summaries, learning objectives, case studies, research examples, applications to clinical practice, further reading and short answer questions. They include the latest psychological theory and research evidence.
