The Clinical Competencies for the CCE
CS 2.1 General practitioners provide the primary contact for holistic and patient-centred care
CS 2.2 General practitioners diagnose and manage the full range of health conditions in a diverse range of patients across the lifespan through a therapeutic relationship.
CS 2.3 General practitioners are informed and innovative.
CS 2.4 General practitioners collaborate and coordinate care.
CS 1.2 Through effective health education, general practitioners promote health and wellbeing to empower patients.
This competency concerns the management of common, serious, urgent and chronic medical conditions encountered in general practice. Aspects of care beyond managing simple consultations (including management of comorbidity and uncertainty) are incorporated. The management plan is patient-centred at all times. Therapeutic reasoning includes the steps taken based on the problem list, or likely diagnosis that has been developed and is a part of the clinical reasoning process.
This focuses on how you develop appropriate and patient-centred management plans. Using an evidence base for prescribing pharmacological treatment and considering non-pharmacological options are included in the assessment. Your management plan should be appropriate for the working diagnosis and the problem list that you develop and should reflect a good understanding of accepted general practice. The conditions, their implications, and intervals for follow-up or review need to be discussed with the patient and agreed to.
