The scenario involves a simulated consultation where you, as a Foundation Year 2 doctor in General Practice, interact with a role-playing patient named James Horton. James, aged 45, has called to report head pain. You are given no additional information and must assess and manage the patient over the telephone within an 8-minute timeframe.
The examiner will assess your performance based on three key domains: Data-gathering skills, technical, and assessment skills: This includes your ability to collect relevant information, employ technical expertise, and conduct thorough assessments. Clinical management skills: The examiner will look for your aptitude in managing clinical situations, making informed decisions, and implementing appropriate interventions. Interpersonal skills: Your ability to interact effectively with patients and colleagues, demonstrate empathy, and communicate clearly will be evaluated. The examiner is looking for behaviors aligned with the expectations of a competent and compassionate doctor across these domains.
To pass the assessment, you need to demonstrate several key competencies, including: Taking a detailed history of the patient's head pain, covering occurrences, location, duration, triggers, and associated symptoms. Obtaining a comprehensive medical history, including information about medications and any relevant trauma. Inquiring about lifestyle factors such as alcohol consumption, diet, sexual activity, and sleep patterns. Identifying patient concerns, actively listening, and displaying empathy throughout the consultation. Making a preliminary diagnosis of possible migraine based on the information gathered. Recommending appropriate management strategies for the patient's condition. Conducting the entire consultation fluently and professionally.
Your ability to successfully execute the actions mentioned—taking a detailed history, addressing medical and lifestyle aspects, demonstrating empathy, providing a preliminary diagnosis, suggesting suitable management, and conducting the consultation in a professional manner—will be evaluated. Demonstrating proficiency in these areas is crucial for passing the assessment.
