Tips for learning

  • You may find it helpful to make notes as you go along – especially of any clinically relevant findings like abnormal observations and test results.
  • The learning objectives for the case will be provided at the end after you have completed the episode - just like in real life, where initially you don't know the content your consultation will cover.
  • Please have a careful read as they will help you to consolidate your learning.
  • You can take a break and return to complete and/or review these virtual patient cases. Resume points are built in, and each case has a summary book available on completion.
