  16. Hi all A couple of us have formed a little CASC practice group in preparation for the September 2020 exam. We meet weekly (usually after work) at the The British Library near Kings Cross station in central London. It's pretty relaxed and we just spend an hour or two going through stations. It's been really useful so far. If anyone would like to join, please message me. BW Jamie
  17. Dear doctors I was working in forensic psychiatry for 5 years and got bored so I changed to gen adult for last 2 years. I am liking it but I have 24 patients and in total we have 4 doctors. A full time consultant, full time Specialty doctor (myself), one trainee CT1 and FY2. CT1 is generally out for MRCPsy course and off after nights+study leave. It generally leave us with 3 doctors most of the time. The guidelines of Royal college is that all patients should be seen every week. On top of this we have admissions/discharges/reviews/ professional meetings/carers meeting of patients on leave. This case load is overwhelming. Can somebody tell me how many patients (max) a doctor should have to provide safe care and also to complete admin/legal stuff?
  18. Anyone who has been to the recent ST4 old age clinical scenario staton, could you please describe how to approach the station please You are a newly appointed ST4 trainee in old age psychiatry. Martha Jones is an 84 year old lady who has been admitted to the organic in-patient ward 2 weeks ago having been found wandering. She had an ACE of 68 and was found to have a urine infection that has been treated. A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s has been made following a CT scan that showed atrophy. A repeat ACE has improved to 73 – dropping marks in recall and orientation, with errors copying a star. She was previously living independently. She wants to go back home when she is feeling better, however her daughter/son wants her to move straight into a local dementia registered residential home. The occupational therapy assessment indicates she would probably manage at home with a care package three times a day. In the last ward round the consultant noted she had capacity to decide to go home. The patient’s notes indicate she lives alone in council rented downstairs flat with a cat. Martha’s daughter wants to speak to you about discharge plans. You have Martha’s permission to speak to family. You have 15 minutes with the daughter/son but you can finish earlier if you choose to do so. The interviewers will assess your communication skills and your ability to form a successful doctor – carer partnership

  21. Theres a large Advertising Agency in Mumbai, I have heard from friends, which has Taxi allowance for GIRLS after 9pm and for GUYS after 12 midnight. can you name the agency? and do you think its equality of the genders? like as written in our Constitution?
  22. I guess a reward is like the "Leadership" skill, but it isnt from mastering. I think that would be a cool idea. Something like an extra skill point for each weapon?
