Thank you for participating in the session today.
In RRR we discussed:
- Cerebral palsy: What is and classification
- GMFCS – levels
- Burns in 1 year old – Accidental or non-accidental – history & exam
The clinical station was on Development. 4 year old presents with parental concerns of non being able to manage & do as they expect. Dr I was a very able role player, Dr A took the hot seat for history and Dr K took the hotseat for Developmental assessment. Dr A took a very comprehensive history covering all aspects important and presented it very succulently. Perhaps a little less time on gross motor and more on speech and vision may have earned some brownie points. Dr K attempted the assessment and made a good effort. There were a number of things we could improve and hence will discuss and demonstrate on Thursday.
- our grey cells have some unexpected functions on the hotseat
- practice does improve our control over our grey cells
- Focused history is asked for hence you will NOT be able to cover EVERYTHING
- Aetiology, social functioning & social support are important facets
- 10 minutes is a short time but adequate to get relevant details
- Have 2-3 screening questions for each domain
- Check for HEARING & VISION
- Else if child does not respond to your question – you will not know why?
- Listen to the question Examiner asks – respond to the query
- Questions asked for in history – Do Not start talking about examination
