Decision Making in Obstetric & Gynaecology
The key to successful management of various clinical conditions lies in the ability to take appropriate decisions as per specific situations. The mental exercise, thought of being right or wrong and the need to take responsibility can often weigh heavily upon a clinician’s mind when facing certain clinical conditions. The process of decision-making is usually not as straightforward as selecting a television channel. It requires promptness, confidence and an ability to accept responsibility for the decision finally taken. In daily practice it is essential to have the skill for taking decisions for patient management based on astute history-taking and clinical examination and considering all currently available options to provide the best possible outcome. As each patient is unique, we cannot decide specific management in each clinical situation, however the book have tries to provide knowledge and information about the various diagnostic and management options presently available. So armed with knowledge of all the diagnostic and management options available, the reader can decide the most suitable treatment for the patient, keeping their best interests in mind.
