Question C2a

3 posts in this topic

Describe an example from your experience in psychiatry of a time when you found it difficult to understand the concerns of a patient, family member or carer. What impact did this have & how did you overcome this? What feedback you get regarding this from any party?

I am really stuck with this questions. Any ideas or thoughts would be appreciated

Thanks

Psychiatry's full of situations you can describe though not all are that interesting to put down.

Here's a few ideas

Psychiatry issues - think of delusions that were hard to understand, autistics with concrete ideas, eating disorders, OCD etc... Relate the scenario to the individual you know rather than describe the condition itself which the application raters should know more about than you.

Cultural beliefs - an oportunity to discuss where religious ideas, cultural values, personal beliefs can present as psychiatric symptoms and how you tweezed them apart while respecting a person's background. The possibilities in this area are endless.

Language / accent barriers - may seem too obvious but if you're stuck, emphasise how getting in a translator made the difference.
