The Clinical Competencies for the CCE
CS2.2.5 Appropriate procedures are undertaken after receiving informed consent
Appropriate procedures are those which are likely to most benefit to an individual’s health and wellbeing from a diagnostic and/or management perspective. Assessment of the appropriate nature of procedures is inherently related to the practice setting, individual sociocultural context, and consequent availability of access to more specialised services. Recommendations for procedures should consider the potential benefits the evidence basis, and the possible risks and costs in the context of any relevant sociocultural beliefs of the individual. The individual trainee should be able to demonstrate a range of procedures appropriate for general practice. Consideration is given to the skills that need to be developed, with specific consideration of the local community or practice population needs.
Rural health context
You should be able to demonstrate knowledge and skills in the range of procedures that are appropriate for general practice. In addition, you should identify skills that you need to develop, specifically considering the needs of the local community or the practice’s population.
