Dear All

Thank you for particpating in the session today.

In RRR we discussed:

  • Respiratoy distress in newborn
  • Child with Liver Disease – management
  • Mesles – complications.

In Communication station – Dr A was our Role Player for a Teenager who had taken a Paracetamol overdose. Dr A was in the hotseat with DR L & Dr A with the examiners hat. Dr A made a good attempt but there were learning points that were discussed and then the roles were reversed. Dr A was in the Hotseat and Dr A in RP mode. The examiners gave very valid observations and feed back.

The Learning points are:

  • We need to practice more
  • Important to learn phrases to use and those to avoid
  • Try and not be judgemental
  • Establish rapport
  • Confidentiality is essential.
  • Watch your communications skills – remember – Dialogue vs Monologue.
  • Be aware of our mannerisms – things we say or act without realizing!

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