In ST2-B we focus on patient demographic groups and look at how this affects health and disease. In General Practice, patients do not present neatly in a block of respiratory or dematology problems one after another, but mixed up within a clinic, and often with multiple connected problems in a single consult. As part of your training in holistic care and increasing understanding of the importance of the psychosocial context patients exist in, we encourage you to focus on the person and not the problem as the semester progresses.
Here follows the timetable for ST2-B. This remains subject to change as guest speakers may need to alter their availability.
Sessions begin at 1400 and will usually finish by 1630 unless indicated. On occassion, things may overrun and trainees are encouraged to stay if possible, but it is recognised that some may have care arrangements that require them to leave at 1630.
We remind you that as part of your paid employment you are required to attend teaching when scheduled unless on approved leave (such as rest time post-nights, annual leave or a zero day). Please familiarise yourself with the Attendance Policy and how to report a planned absence.
The Communication Skills sessions take place on select dates for trainees that have been allocated to that cohort. All trainees will be allocated to the course during their ST2 time by Carole Kennedy. Only allocated trainees should attend these session.
