This book will help final year medical students improve their chances of getting their ideal medical job by practising the new style ‘Situational Judgement Tests’ (SJTs) required for recruitment. It begins with an explanation of the type of questions that are asked and introduces students to exam techniques required in order to succeed in the test. Following on from this, another chapter is dedicated to the core concepts and guidelines expected of junior doctors, before finishing with several mock examinations with answers for the readers to test themselves.SJTs are currently used elsewhere in medicine for the selection of fully qualified doctors into GP training, however this type of examination and questioning is not one which any medical student will be familiar with or have come across in their training to date. The book gives a comprehensive explanation of answers including key references and topics relating to professionalism, medical ethics, GMC guidelines and foundation programme personal specifications. The contributing authors include current foundation year doctors who can offer authentic realism from their ward experience. The book will serve not only as a revision guide but also as an instructional tool to help potential junior doctors reason through professional dilemmas they may encounter in the ‘SJT’ selection tests as well as in real life on the wards.

The Situational Judgement Test at a Glance

Author: Frances Varian,Lara Cartwright

Publisher: John Wiley & Sons

ISBN: 1118490975

Category: Medical

Page: 96

View: 3507

The Situational Judgement Test at a Glance provides a sound introduction to the SJT and details ways you can prepare before the assessment. It includes worked case examples based on real-life scenarios which have been reviewed by experienced clinicians and examiners. The book draws out key aspects of professional practice relevant to the role of a junior doctor. This is based on the nine domains as outlined by the ISFP (Improving Selection to Foundation Programme), who detailed the behaviours necessary to be a competent Foundation Doctor. The overall aim of The Situational Judgement Test at a Glance is not to spoon feed hundreds of practice questions or reams of guidelines, but to steer you towards a logical way of approaching best medical practice – and therefore the SJT – with many examples of doctors' personal experiences along the way. Challenging scenarios are analysed using guidelines from the General Medical Council and research interviews with patients, lab staff and healthcare professionals. All examples in the book are worked in a test-style apparatus, with questions on one side and detailed answers over the page so you can understand the reasoning behind the material.

The Top 100 Drugs

Clinical Pharmacology and Practical Prescribing

Author: Andrew Hitchings,Dagan Lonsdale,Daniel Burrage,Emma Baker

Publisher: Elsevier Health Sciences

ISBN: 0702055158

Category: Medical

Page: 240

Prescribing for the first time is a nerve-wracking experience. Of all the tasks performed by new doctors, it is probably the one with greatest direct impact on the wellbeing of patients. Safe and effective practice rests on a good understanding of both clinical pharmacology and practical prescribing. Acquiring this is not easy, particularly when faced with reams of information about hundreds of unfamiliar drugs, often presented in a way that appears detached from clinical reality. This book is your starting point. It is a direct response to requests from students for a compendium of the 100 most important drugs in the NHS. Key information about the clinical pharmacology and practical prescribing of each drug is presented side-by-side, allowing you to direct your attention as appropriate for your stage of training. Drugs can be accessed alphabetically when you need quick information on the wards and by organ system or clinical indication when you are at your desk. Research led by Professor Emma Baker has identified the ‘top 100 drugs’ by their importance and prescribing frequency. She has shown that the list changes little over time, making it a stable resource upon which to base learning. The top 100 drugs and the five most important intravenous fluids are presented using a clear, consistent layout across double-page spreads. Drugs are arranged alphabetically and also listed by organ system and clinical indication, providing multiple pathways into the information. Clinical pharmacology is discussed under the headings: common indications; mechanisms of action; important adverse effects; warnings; and important interactions. Practical prescribing is discussed under the headings: prescription; administration; communication; monitoring; and cost. A clinical tip is presented for every drug. Single-best-answer questions are provided for self-assessment and to show how information from several drugs may be integrated.
