CSA Learning Sets 9.00 - 12.30
Every Tuesday there is a chance for groups of trainees to work together in preparation for the CSA. This is most relevant to ST3s. It is optional but strongly recommended.
Please ask amongst your peers if you are keen to form or join a Learning Set. Do let the Programme Directors know too, as they may be able to offer additional support when possible.
Role-play of consultations amongst your peers may feel artificial and uncomfortable but in fact it can be a fantastic and safe environment to explore different approaches. To some extent the CSA itself is an artificial situation, with actors and assessors in the room, so role-play can help to prepare you for this.
These learning sets are most valuable when the feedback given is honest, thoughtful and sensitive.
