Opening Question: Which fictional doctor would you most like to be?

Main Topic: Top tips for new doctors dealing with older patients

Discussion Points:

Each participant to identify one ‘top tip’ and one ‘pet hate’ (inc. how to avoid doing it)

James

  • Pet Hate: "As far as I'm aware"
  • Top Tip: Rule of 'stuff'
    • Know your stuff
    • Give a stuff
    • Take no stuff and
    • Remember, that despite all of this, stuff happens...

Pete

  • Pet Hate: Fluids - too much or too little
  • Top Tip: There is always something you can do to help a delirious patient

Sean

  • Pet Hate: Unfounded diagnosis of UTI
  • Top Tip: Get to know your patients

Mark

  • Pet Hate: No collateral hx from confused pts
  • Top Tip: Open questions, and give time to answer (eg. How are your waterworks/Tell me about your bowels, rather than 'Have you got any problems with') - Remember to ask this in the systemic enquiry

Top Three ‘CotEcast comandments':

  1. Don't diagnose UTI without good evidence
  2. Remember the rule of 'stuff'
  3. If you don’t know, ask!
