Description

Come along to our final online teaching session to learn how to systematically approach two common blood tests (U&Es, LFTs and TFTs) and a data interpretation OSCE station. We will go through some common results and provide tips on how to use patient-friendly language to effectively communicate normal and abnormal blood test results in preparation for your OSCEs and hopefully, for your role as junior doctors in a few years time!

You will have the opportunity to ask questions and raise any concerns you may have around data interpretation OSCE stations with students who have been in your shoes.

** Please fill out this 5-minute anonymous pre-teaching questionnaire before you attend: https://forms.gle/uWaFydW3ELegiKTK7 **

  1. CXR interpretation - 6pm, 10 Jan
  2. ECG interpretation - 6pm, 17 Jan
