In medical practice, the diagnosis of patients with complex or rare conditions can pose significant challenges. Often, these diagnostic dilemmas require a thorough understanding of the underlying pathophysiology and clinical presentation of the condition, as well as consideration of multiple differential diagnoses. The ability to accurately diagnose such conditions can have a significant impact on patient outcomes and quality of life. This CPD module will explore several diagnostic dilemmas encountered in clinical practice, with a focus on developing strategies to improve diagnostic accuracy.
The module is based on 10 clinical case scenarios with associated MCQs and each explanation provides further reading material to refresh your knowledge of each diagnosis. Once you complete the module - and achieve the minimum pass rate of 60% - you'll be awarded with a downloadable 1 hour CPD Certificate, which you can print or upload to your annual CPD Portfolio.
On completion of this CPD module, you will be able to:
Review common diagnostic dilemmas in clinical practice, including those encountered in complex and rare conditions
Develop strategies for effective differential diagnosis, including interpretation of laboratory testing
Improve awareness of the presentation or rarer conditions in clinical settings
