Dear All

Thank you for participating in the session today.

In RRR we discussed:

  • Oedematous 4 year old
  • Ambiguous genitalia – new-born
  • Central cyanosis – new-born

AG gave a Power Point presentation discussing the Clinical stations in the exam from 2023. The exams are expected to move to Face to Face with children. This is a major move from Online exams during the Covid pandemic. We then had question answers on specific aspects of the clinical stations.

The Learning points are:

  • Develop a differential diagnosis of 3 early
  • Structured format of your examination technique
  • Explain what you will be doing – avoid Pain – stop.
  • Opportunistic examination with infants and young children
  • General examination is essential at ALL stations
  • Ht & Wt Centiles – not actual cm & kg
  • Consider asking for Parent’s help
  • Consider Chaperone with older children
  • ‘What will I see if the ‘dress’ was not removed’ –
