Dear All

Thank you for participating in the session today.

In RRR we discussed:

  • Exomphalos
  • Cyanosis
  • Child abuse – categories

The History wash role played by Dr A of a 15 year old young person with diabetes mellitus – poor controlled and with weight loss. Dr O was in the hot seat. The history was covered very well and almost all points were covered and checked. Presentation was precise and Management discussion was good.

Learning points:

  • Structure to history taking is a MUST.
  • Usually something has happened in previous 3-6 months in a Chronic illness
  • Keep the task in mind
  • Make a differential of possible causes and explore appropriately
  • Probe into compliance if evidence of non-compliance provided
  • Do not pass it over with a cursory question
  • Read Non acute management of diabetic complications

We will be covering another History scenario on Thursday.
