Mind the Gap: a handbook of clinical signs on black and brown skin

This week I've been reading about an upcoming handbook being produced by St George's University, London called Mind the Gap: a handbook of clinical signs on black and brown skin


Author Malone Mukwende felt "that, as a black student, he felt alienated with the way clinical skills is currently being taught due to the lack of discussion around clinical signs on darker skin."


Mukwende, with his co-authors, Senior Lecturer in Diversity and Medical Education, Margot Turner, and Clinical Lecturer in Clinical Skills, Peter Tamony, want "to raise awareness of how symptoms and signs can present differently on darker skin as well as highlighting the different language that needs to be used in descriptors."
