Wessex RCGP Case Cards
These cards were written by four GPs. Case' stands for 'communicate, articulate, simplify, explain'. Each card is unique and gives practical advice and explanation. The focus is on the words to use when communicating with a patient.
There is an accompanying index manual, which splits the cards into 20 categories, such as children and young people, sexual health and mental health. These categories are mapped against the curriculum.
Case Cards is an exciting concept, and an excellent development tool for communication skills. The box is easy to carry around and great to use when you have a spare moment by yourself or as part of group learning. It can even be used as a game to keep you stimulated. It was written during the GPs' preparations for exams, and edited by experts in the GP consultation.
