Dear All

Thank you for participating in the session today.

In RRR we discussed:

  • 1 day old baby – hypotonic, poor handling
  • MCUG – describe to mother
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease

The clinical station covered was a Communication scenario on request of Dr A, who also was our Role Player. Dr S & Dr N had the examiner hats. FY2 wishes to discuss her audit project – to discuss and manage her concerns. Dr A took the hotseat. He made a very good attempt but there were some valid points noted by the ‘Examiners’. 

The Learning points are:

  • Communication skill is essential to pass the exam.
  • Read the task carefully.
  • You should follow Role Player’s agenda and NOT your!
  • Let Role player speak uninterrupted after opening introductions.
  • Summarize briefly – 3-4 sentences – at 6 minutes.
  • You have to be ACCURATE with MEDICAL FACTS
  • Listen to Role Player for cues – vital
  • Briefly describe Normal before describing Abnormality.
  • Investigation – say with expected results.

Please visit to add your comments of points I may have missed.
