Thank you for participating in the session today.
In RRR we discussed:
- TB – features & management
- Nephrotic syndrome
- Kawasaki’s disease
The Communication scenario was of a 1 day old baby with ambiguous genitalia born to a couple from Afghanistan. Dr S was a good role player. Dr M was in the hot seat and had a good shot at the task of informing parents of diagnosis and management. It was a difficult scenario and feedback peers was to the point.
The learning points are:
- Who all in general identify / assign sex of a child? Only doctors don’t!
- Check prior knowledge – give enough opportunity to Role player
- Ambiguous or abnormality – better to ‘demonstrate’ than to just ‘say’ abnormality
- Let’s see the baby together – the ‘Genitalia’ – does it look like boy or a girl?
- this will move scenario much further than in explaining.
- Can and should be used for any abnormality – can draw – if appropriate
- Do not use boy or girl in subsequent discussion – ‘child / baby’.
- Appropriate management – target next 7-10 days initially.
- Usually what we do in first meeting – More if asked by role player.
- Being a Role Player is an EYE OPENER. Get idea of what is expected from Hot Seat
