This book has been written by a CSA examiner in concert with GP training programme members to help candidates approach the exam feeling prepared, calm and in control. It includes advice on preparation, consultation skills, how the assessment is marked, and 12 practice CSA cases, along with advice on how candidates can create cases with which to practise and assess each other. Clear, practical, and based on sound knowledge and proven techniques, this book will be essential reading for nMRCGP CSA candidates. 'Rhona is a passionate and compassionate educator with a strong sense of natural justice, and also a long-standing MRCGP examiner. She has developed an approach to understanding and preparing for the Clinical Skills Assessment (CSA) that is already tried, tested and proven. An approach that will enhance the candidate's ability as a GP at the same time as preparing them for the CSA.' - Simon Gregory in his Foreword

The Clinical Skills Assessment has been developed as "an assessment of a doctor's ability to integrate and apply clinical, professional, communication and practical skills appropriate for general practice". Candidates will have to see 13 'patients' during the exam, presenting with problems that will test the doctor's skills in diagnosis, problem solving, communication and ethics, as well as practical clinical skills and treatment planning. Get Through New MRCGP: Clinical Skills Assessment is a unique book designed to help the candidate with their preparation for this new and daunting examination. The book opens with a chapter on how to approach the exam, giving valuable advice on how trainees can focus their time in day-to-day GP surgeries, and through reflection, video review and personal study, can develop the skills required to pass the CSA. This is followed by two comprehensive mock examinations, each covering a spread of topics and skills as outlined in the new RCGP GP curriculum. The reader is provided with the full candidate and patient notes for each station, followed by a comprehensive discussion of the areas that the station is testing, and the points that should be covered by the candidate in order to get the best marks. Each station is supplemented by a summary of the knowledge base required for the scenario, including the latest national guidelines, and a list of take-home messages and further reading.

There is no-one better placed to pull together decades of learning and experience on how to achieve the greatest success in the general practice consultation. The relaxed pace of writing, the accessible examples, the clear narrative and the engaging anecdotes make this a resource that it is accessible and useful to all who seek to improve their clinical consulting skills.’ Helen Stokes-Lampard, former Chair of the Royal College of General Practitioners This brand-new book aims to help GPs establish ways of thinking, talking and behaving in the consultation that are most likely to lead to good outcomes. It describes a simple three-part approach to the consultation’s essential task, which is to convert a patient’s problem into a plan acceptable to both patient and doctor. It combines reader-friendly explanations, helpful illustrations and examples from everyday practice. Key features: Written by a respected GP, teacher, and author of the highly-regarded trilogy The Inner Consultation, The Inner Apprentice and The Inner Physician Gives GPs a framework for consulting that is easy to remember, comprehensive, adaptable, robust, exam-friendly and quickly becomes second nature Identifies and addresses key areas of anxiety for GP trainees and MRCGP candidates, including ‘How do I complete in 10 minutes?’, ‘How do I deal with difficult patients?’ and ‘What do I do when it all goes pear-shaped and I don’t know what to do?’ Gives advice and practical suggestions for how to make the difficult transition from theory to practice, from reading about the consultation to actually doing it better in real life Consulting in a Nutshell will help GPs at every career stage – from medical student to CSA candidate to experienced practitioner – to analyse, develop and grow their personal consulting style.
