Dear All

Thank you for participating in the session today.

In RRR we discussed:

  • Syndrome diagnosis (Trisomy 21) & Genetic counselling
  • Nightmare & Night Terrors: if NO IDEA – throw back on Role player.
  • Rickets – causes

The Video Station was of a video clip of 2 year old generally looking well with facial swelling, puffy eyes. Dr I took the hotseat and picked up the clinical signs but the history could have been more specific. It is important to get he differential diagnosis at the start – do not go into the video station with ONLY one diagnosis.

Learning points:

  • Read the lead in statement very carefully
  • After watching the cues develop a differential diagnosis
  • Do NOT end up with ONLY ONE diagnosis.
  • The differential will guide you to the History questions and Examination points
  • Management of Investigations – give with expected results – NOt just a list
  • Visualize what you would do on the ward
  • Always involve your Consultant and Tertiary unit where appropriate
