  1. As I mentioned above in bedford centre the examiners ( one of them was professor )was asking questions from first minute , some of these questions , and when i did not know , they helped me . Also they asked very basic clinical questions : In parkinsonism and lewy body dementia How do you assess cognitive functions? how do you assess frontal lobe function? In LD one patient was talking to her self , Why do you think ? I was not extremely bad to start asking these questions. Funny enough the 2 examiners had the same style A friend of mine who is SPR said that it seems are new as examiners Any way , wait and see
  2. Bedford hospital Forensic case paranoid schiz schizoaffective ? extensive forensic history , many admissions ,MHA stable now , good historian , every minute gave delusion or hallucination had on admission was difficult to control and write down everything to present it in 10 minutes. I managed to present it in 2 minutes but I am not sure if I presented the most important parts asked to illicit thought disorder and perception disorder and insight . was volunterely mentioned every thing , I had to interrupt him few times Questions management, tool for risk assessment HCR20 , what historic part asking for what about medication ,he was on cocktail of 2 antipsychotics anti depressant and mood stabilizer prognosis Aetiology examiners over all were friendly and nice , not sure about the case although there was no disaster wait and see
  3. As you said Pudding I had a forensic case from general ward , I was surprised that this patient is not in a secure unit . The discussion about venues can be very useful I am not sure how it did go . Thanks pudding
  4. No one know even the examiners, I heard I have my exam in bedford very well organised Examiners were friendly My PMP same like Carlo One of the examiner was professor Stange style , as if I was in a teaching session , the course was more serious The examiners did not let me say any thing on my own , started by questions straitaway and very interactive , hints and helped me to answer if i stuck in a very unusual way , and this is from first minute I did not feel i was in exam , to extent . when I finished I felt ok but today I have a feeling that i frgot few basic things , and getting worried any one has the same experience

  7. Thanks Dutchei and Joy Is quite common that Gps prescribe opiate base pain killer , like DF118 or Codeine and then usually patients abusing these tablets , then GP referring them to drug and alcohol sevices , more difficult to treat than heroin users as they do not consider this as their fault. I am not about the main issue here , somatisation ,psychogenic pain, depression , personality , substance misuse , organic Any one had this PMP before ,what is probs? Thanks
