Thank you for attending the session today. I would like to thank Dr P for extending the session to a Double session keeping needs of participants who are sitting the exam in the next 2 weeks.
The information was useful for those of us who have a little longer to prepare for the exam.
Dr P gave a comprehensive presentation on the Do’s & Don’ts of Development station. There are two distinct parts – History and clinical assessment. Focus of history is on determining the aetiology of condition, severity, management and support available to the family. Assessment is to determine the age of child for the task set.
Dr N was in the hot seat and made a very good attempt at the task set of fine motor assessment.
There are a number of learning points:
- Time management is very important
- Problem oriented history
- Rapport with Role player & child
- Verbalize the exam – more difficult than you would assume
- Systematic approach is important.
