GPs in Training Series - Clinical Conundrums

This interactive case-based workshop will focus on how to cope with and manage clinical uncertainty. Developed for registrars, this activity looks at the challenges the isolation of General Practice poses, together with the demands of independent decision making, time pressures and undifferentiated clinical presentations. This workshop will provide strategies on how to tolerate uncertainty:

    • where to start with a difficult presentation
    • how to 'filter'
    • knowing when to call for help
    • rational testing/investigating
    • clinical reasoning and decision making skills
    • how to protect against diagnostic pitfalls
