The aim of this three day residential workshop is to help you to develop your clinical assessment skills to allow you to investigate common presentations in general practice. You will assess a range of common presentations for on-the-day appointments and develop a toolbox of skills to help you to apply a patient-centred approach in a general patient examination. In this workshop you will explore the key presentations in conditions such as: gastrointestinal, skin, musculoskeletal, ear nose and throat, childhood acute illness and infection.
