In "Role Play and Clinical Communication", John Skelton critically considers the practice and benefits of this mainstream teaching method. His wide-ranging approach reflects on the recent developments within medical education, incorporating the medical humanities, the nature of language and communication, and the rules of human behaviour. You will find Skelton's light-hearted and open-minded attitude to communication unquestionably illuminating.
