The Clinical Skills Assessment has been developed as qan assessment of a doctor's ability to integrate and apply clinical, professional, communication and practical skills appropriate for general practiceq. Candidates will have to see 13 'patients' during the exam, presenting with problems that will test the doctor's skills in diagnosis, problem solving, communication and ethics, as well as practical clinical skills and treatment planning. Get Through New MRCGP: Clinical Skills Assessment is a unique book designed to help the candidate with their preparation for this new and daunting examination. The book opens with a chapter on how to approach the exam, giving valuable advice on how trainees can focus their time in day-to-day GP surgeries, and through reflection, video review and personal study, can develop the skills required to pass the CSA. This is followed by two comprehensive mock examinations, each covering a spread of topics and skills as outlined in the new RCGP GP curriculum. The reader is provided with the full candidate and patient notes for each station, followed by a comprehensive discussion of the areas that the station is testing, and the points that should be covered by the candidate in order to get the best marks. Each station is supplemented by a summary of the knowledge base required for the scenario, including the latest national guidelines, and a list of take-home messages and further reading.Questions you could ask include: Why is she concerned about not being pregnant yet? a What are her expectations of how long it takes to get pregnant? a What is her experience of family and friends trying to conceive? a What does heranbsp;...
