Medical Problem Solving

Friday 6th October 2017 Central London Pattern recognition is one of the stalwarts of clinical practice. A combination of book-learning and experience helps us all to know that the pot-bellied, panting, polyphagic, polydipsic dog is very likely to be Cushingoid. However, when the situation is less clear-cut, or there are conflicting clinical findings, it is easy to become lost. In these situations, a problem-based approach becomes imperative. The plan in this interactive one-day session is to explore some challenging medical cases using this problem-based approach. The cases will be a range of endocrine, respiratory, GI, urogenital and beyond! During the case work-ups we will look critically at clinical pathology, imaging and histopathology results in the quest to make diagnoses and plan treatments for these patients- it will be a whistle-stop tour of advanced internal medicine! The objective of this session is to improve confidence and promote a logical approach when dealing with more challenging medical cases. An ideal day for those undertaking medicine modules in certificates. Topics to be covered include: • How to approach cases using problem-based techniques • Interpretation of diagnostic tests and imaging • Logical systemic approach for investigation of endocrine, respiratory, GI and urogenital cases. www.centralcpd.co.uk www.vet-ecpd.com
