Thank you for participating in the session today.
In RRR we discussed:

  • Diabetes Insipidus – what, diagnosis & management
  • Cystic Fibrosis: Diagnosis
  • Blood spot test vs Guthrie test

In the Communication we took scenario of disclosure of information to a 12 year old with likely diagnosis of Leukemia. Parents had asked Medical team not to inform the child. Student nurse is unhappy with the decision. Dr A was in the hotseat and Dr A & Dr AG were role players. The scenario is a difficult one but relates to a number of topics that regularly come in the exam.
Learning points:

  • Ethical communication – important to have a structure
  • Use correct terminology
  • Be anatomically correct when discussing
  • Do NOT give up if you feel you have NO idea of where to go
  • If Role Player keeps coming back – refuses to move forward
  • Throw back to Role player – ‘Why are you concerned: What do you know of it?”
  • Role player has information they will give ONLY if ASKED.
  • Use 4 minutes wisely and prepare ‘well’.
