“This book has been thoughtfully written… and will be a great asset to each trainee using it, but also a good resource for trainers and VTS groups.”; InnovAiT, August 2016
CSA Practice Cases for the MRCGP contains 52 practice cases (set up as 4 full CSA circuits) to allow you to work through a range of representative CSA cases. These cases can be tackled by a small revision group or used for structured individual revision.
It is a book of two halves:
- The first half of the book contains 26 cases – these case contain lots of detail and are an ideal way to start preparing for the exam. The “patient” notes are extensive to allow a non-medic to tackle the role-playing. The explanatory notes for the “doctor” contain comprehensive guidance and questions to provide a model of what a good competent GP should do. These cases help you to refine your consultation skills and identify areas of weakness.
- The second half of the book also contains 26 cases, but the cases are more concise, with less explanation, and are ideal to work through as the real exam gets closer. They offer you the opportunity to practise and revise your CSA technique.
Whether you are just starting out on your preparation for the CSA exam, or are in the final cramming stage, the cases in this book should be an essential part of your preparation.
