Dear All

Thank you for attending the session.

In RRR we discussed:

  • Tics – Tourette’s
  • Acute Bronchiolitis
  • Chronic constipation

The Communication scenario was of a discussion with a student nurse who was ‘upset’ and wanted to know why information of illness of a 13 year old was not shared with the young person on his parents advice. Dr M was a good Role Player & Dr R made a very good attempt at tackling the subject. Dr A had a second interaction with Dr M. there was very good rapport. Most of the tasks were covered but there are a few points.

Learning points are:

  • Medical ethics is an important topic – brush up knowledge
  • Body language is very important
  • ‘There are no rights or wrongs in such circumstance.
  • Ethics Guidelines gives us a frame work to deal with difficult situations’.
  • 4 pillars of Ethics are …
  • Check with Role Player to explain ‘What is worrying them / is concerning them?’
  • Do not ask Role Player to summarize – ‘they can take a long time’.
  • “We will encourage parents to tell at the earliest – can do it together’.
