Many doctors do not receive training early in their careers on the broad range of non-clinical aspects of their work, and confront day-to-day issues for which initial medical education has failed to prepare them. Experienced doctors and consultants can also experience a similar lack of accessible reference material on these aspects of their role and for the non-clinical training of their juniors. This book and its companion volume The Doctor's Handbook Part 2: understanding the NHS, have been written to address these and other needs. Previously published as The Specialist Registrar and New Consultant Handbook, these completely revised and reconfigured volumes reflect the changing everyday work of specialist trainees, registrars and consultants. Topics covered in Volume 1 include: * Exploring your approach to work and learning * Teaching, training, appraisal and assessment * Effective interpersonal communication skills * Managing day-to-day issues * Effective written communication * Non-clinical involvement with patients * Research Part 2 covers the workings of the NHS as they relate to doctors, including structure, funding and governance, licensing and revalidation. The two volumes of The Doctors Handbook are an essential reference for all doctors, from specialists through to consultants.Transformational leadership We all have a preferred style to which we tend to revert when under pressure, but how can our ...
