Thank you for participating in the session today.

In RRR we discussed:

  • Haematuria – aetiology
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease – Crohn’s Disease
  • Child abuse – fractures in immobile infant

The clinical station was assessment of Developmental age of a 3.5 year old child. Do remember at the next diet there will not be a child at the Development station. It is similar to a Virtual station with Examiner being the ‘child’ and you will need to get Dependent cues from them. Role player will be there to get history from. Dr A was in the Hotseat with Dr A and Dr P had the examiner hat. Dr A made a good attempt at assessment. It became apparent Virtual station is more difficult to work through when child is not present. Dr t moved to the hotseat and made a better attempt at the task.

It is important to summarize your assessment – Do NOT just narrate what you have gathered from the examiner instead start with if the development is appropriate or delayed – one domain or more than one – Age – and then give your supporting evidence.

The Learning points are:

  • Systematic approach to your examination technique
  • General observation at the start – what is the child with and what is he/she doing?
  • Directions to ‘child’ have to be clear and simple
  • One tool at a time – mention removing it after ‘done’
  • Practice Verbalising the assessment examination
  • Finish in 7 minutes
  • Remember Non Accidental / Unexplained Injury
