This concise yet comprehensive guide is focused on the curriculum and current exam style of the MRCOG Part 1 examination. It integrates clinical knowledge with basic science, providing readers with a deeper understanding of pathophysiology of medical disorders in obstetrics and gynaecology. The lead editor is a member of the Part 1 Examination Committee and her insights are skilfully woven into the book's revision notes, sample Single Best Answer (SBA) question and answer explanations, and tips on exam technique. The book encourages a structured thought process to develop, making it easier for clinicians to make differential diagnoses and conduct relevant investigations and treatment plans. The focus on basic sciences also endows readers with the ability to develop research ideas and evaluate findings. Featuring easy-to-read text, highlighted key points, colour illustrations, and plenty of practice papers, this succinct guide is essential preparation reading for trainee obstetricians and gynaecologists taking the challenging Part 1 MRCOG exam.
Evidence-based medicine is the conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients. With the evolution of evidence-based medicine, and the explosion of medical literature, there has been a continuous stream of guidelines published in obstetrics and gynaecology. These guidelines, designed to provide systematically developed recommendations, assist clinicians and patients in making decisions about appropriate treatment for specific conditions. They also provide crucial information for candidates preparing for the Member of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (MRCOG) examination. Our attempt is to bring together the essential information contained in these guidelines in these comprehensive books. Where guidelines do not exist, we have relied on available evidence and accepted norms of practice. The information is presented in flowcharts, representing a step-by-step method of solving a clinical problem.
As our books are a revision guide for MRCOG candidates, we have focused primarily on RCOG and other UK national guidelines. However, many chapters contain a ‘Guideline Comparator’ box carrying information from other important international guidelines, thus providing an international perspective. Several chapters also contain a ‘what not to do’ box, which should act as a source of rich debate! Our desire is that these books act as an essential tool for clinicians and examination candidates. However, they should not replace a close study of the guidelines themselves.
