Title:“Clinical teaching made easy: a practical guide to teaching and learning in clinical settings”

Review in brief; 'this text provides on-the -spot practical help for clinicians'.
This is a 23 chapter book of 246 pages. There are 14 other contributors who have co-authored many of the chapters with the two editors. The material has been previously published as a monthly series of articles in the British Journal of Hospital Medicine. The book is clearly laid out and includes tables, figures and flowcharts. The material is well presented and as the preface says it is a practical book written for the clinician rather than the academic educator. As such it provides easily digestible overviews on key clinical teaching situations but with ample background knowledge to stimulate interest and further reading. Each chapter ends with a Conclusion paragraph and a bullet box of key points. References are given to additional online resources and e-learning modules. This on-the -spot practical help for clinicians should appeal to many involved in teaching in the healthcare professions.
