The MRCGP CSA Cases book has been divided into two sections; an introductory section that goes into detail about the key communication and interpersonal skills needed for the exams, as well as a section that contains challenging MRCGP CSA cases. We have written the cases to reflect the standard of the harder end of the examination spectrum and have tried to combine medical knowledge, with cues, and concerns that so often throw and confuse registrars. For each case we have a candidate brief, a comprehensive actors brief and a case walk-through, which we would consider to be the best-practice approach for that scenario. We have tried our best to make the cases as realistic as possible but to a level of complexity that can be completed in a 10 minute consultation. When using the book we advise you to practice with at least 2 fellow GP registrars, one acting as the examiner and the other as the actor. In this way, all registrars will be able to appreciate the different nuances of the cases from the perspectives of the examiner and the actor. We hope that this would give you some insight into what is required to pass the CSA exam.
