How to take a History


History Taking is one of the most important skills required by a doctor. Many clinicians argue that 70% of the diagnosis can be found in the history, with follow up investigations, imaging and special tests only really required to answer initial doubts. This course will go through the principles of history taking, what questions to ask, and how we can tailor this to different presenting complaints.
