Thank you for participating in the session today.
In RRR we discussed:
- Acute Renal Failure – definition & causes
- Sarcoma – diagnosis & management
- Hoarseness in a 4 year old
In our Clinical session we continued with Development station / scenario from Tuesday. Dr P gave history summary. Dr K took the Hotseat for Assessment of NH, 4 year old. He made a good attempt but there were a few points that could be improved: Rapport with child and General observation. Dr A took the second attempt and improved on managing the assessment. He overlooked a fact – one tool at a time and complete one tool before moving on to next. His summary was good.
The Learning points are:
- There will not be children at this station at this diet
- Examiner will be your ‘Role Player’ giving dependent cues.
- General observation is ESSENTIAL for Development station too.
- Introductions same as in other stations
- Rapport building with ‘child’ with few easy ice breakers
- Observe child’s: ‘Aids’, Posture, initial Interaction, Eye contact
- CLEAR instructions – targeted – child can understand
- Fine motor: Start with ‘handedness’.
- Select your Tools: Cubes, Paper & Crayon, Book, Beads etc
- Use ONE TOOL at a time.
- Check the task till he cannot demonstrate – Upper functional age limit.
- Remove it from vision once finished with it.
- be Systematic – do not move forward and back
- Summarize with your Assessment of skill level and not list
