CAIRO BOOKS's Description
This first of its kind comprehensive textbook covers all the psychology you
need to know as an undergraduate medical student. The authors show the
importance of applied psychological theory and evidence to medicine, and offer
enough depth on the subject to span your entire degree. Psychology for Medicine
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 should
suit all curricula: Psychology and Health covers core health psychology topics
such as stress, symptom perception, health behavior 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.
Healthcare Practice covers clinical skills and practice, including chapters on
evidence-based medicine, communication skills and psychological intervention.
