The Clinical Competencies for the CCE
C2.2 General practitioners diagnose and manage the full range of health conditions in a diverse range of patients, across the lifespan through a therapeutic relationship
This is about a conscious, structured approach to making diagnoses and decision-making. The focus is on the content and includes all the steps leading up to formulating a diagnosis or problem list. This also includes diagnostic accuracy that does not necessarily require the correct diagnosis, but that the direction of reasoning was appropriate and accurate. The trainee’s ability to think about and reflect on their reasoning is another aspect of this assessment domain. This competency is closely aligned with information gathering; however, it can also be assessed in different ways.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health context
The focus here is on the steps leading up to formulating a working diagnosis, relevant differential diagnoses and a problem list. Using a safe diagnostic strategy and describing how you developed a specific problem list are assessed in this area. By formulating a clinically appropriate working diagnosis, you demonstrate diagnostic accuracy. This does not require the correct diagnosis but that the direction of your reasoning was appropriate and accurate.
