Synthesising symptoms and signs is the cornerstone of medical practice; it is also known as hypothesis generation. There are many disorders that have classical presentations with suggestive symptoms and signs. This module, composed of 10 clinically-rich self-assessment questions, delivers typical presentations of varied and diverse conditions that you'd expect to see in your daily practice.
Work through the questions, reflect upon your answers and take advantage of the further reading available in order to improve your knowledge and understanding of Diagnostic Synthesis. Once you successfully 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 successful completion of this CPD module, you will have a greater understanding of the following:
The basics of diagnostic synthesis
Typical presentations of a variety of conditions
The differences between normality and disease
