CSA practice cases

Here are some cases that you may wish to use to practise for the CSA.   This page will be gradually populated with more and more cases.  Please don’t do these cases on your own – practise them with someone else.  You need to physically practise rather than trying to ‘play’ them in your mind.  Buddy up with some fellow trainees.  Ask your trainer if he or she will play the patient.

Here are some video clips demonstrating simple ways of explaining common medical conditions.  You don’t have to copy these – try and use them to develop your own personal style.  Examiners get bored of hearing the exact same explanation from 50 different trainees on say a diabetes station.    Develop your own style.  These clips are taken from: www.pennine-gp-training.co.uk/csa-videos-common-medical-conditions-explained.htm
