New Norwegian introductory book to medical communication

Pål Gulbrandsen and Arnstein Finset just released their book “Skreddersydde samtaler” (“Tailored talks”) on Gyldendal Akademisk. The book is meant for medical students and doctors, and is brief with lots of examples from different medical situations. Two chapters cover aims and concepts, three chapters the structure and skills for the consultation’s different phases, one chapter covers 21 specific challenges, and a last chapter summarizes the evidence. The brevity of the book is deliberate, as doctors are extremely busy and need short texts.
