Series: Oxford Medical Handbooks

The Oxford Handbook for the Foundation Programme returns in a new edition to keep junior doctors, as well as their supervisors and senior medical students, up-to-date and give them the information and confidence they need to excel during and beyond the Foundation Programme.This new edition has been fully revised to take in the latest guidelines, the new junior doctors' contract, and the most recent Foundation Programme curriculum. It has new sections to demystify the NHS structure and explore key changes in social care and the interface with the NHS, and revised key information on the medical certificate of the cause of death, the role of the medical examiner, and changes to interactions with the coroner, as well as a new standalone chapter on Psychiatry.The junior doctor's pocket mentor, this handbook distils the knowledge of four authors across multiple NHS environments in an easy access format, covering everything from practical guidance at the patient's bedside to aspects of adapting to day-to-day life as a junior doctor that are rarely covered in medical school.With this indispensable survival guide to the Foundation Programme, you need never be alone on the wards again.

In The Press

Having used the Foundation Programme book over the last week I have found it hugely beneficial. This text is great to refer to, as well as providing a sense of reassurance that I am doing the right thing! The systematic approach of the book, and neatly put together sections ensures nothing is overlooked. What I also find particularly appealing about it is chapters 1 and 2, which are full of tips on subjects only briefly covered at medical school. Many of my fellowcolleagues showed a keen interest when I showed them the book and stated that they would find it very helpful in their day to day ward work. To me this book could not be much better to see a junior doctor pass through the Foundation Programme both safely and successfully.
