8 situational judgment tests Situational Judgement Tests are a test of aptitude and are designed to assess the professional attributes expected of a Foundation doctor. There are two question formats: 1. Rank five possible responses in the most appropriate order 2. Select the three most appropriate responses for the situation

9 example 1 You are looking after Mr Kucera who has previously been treated for prostate carcinoma. Preliminary investigations are strongly suggestive of a recurrence. As you finish taking blood from a neighbouring patient, Mr Kucera leans across and says “tell me honestly, is my cancer back?”

10 A Explain to Mr Kucera that it is likely that his cancer has come back B Reassure Mr Kucera that he will be fine C Explain to Mr Kucera that you do not have all the test results, but you will speak to him as soon as you do D Inform Mr Kucera that you will chase up the results of his tests and ask one of your senior colleagues to discuss them with him E Invite Mr Kucera to join you and a senior nurse in a quiet room, get a colleague to hold your ‘bleep’ then explore his fears

11 answer: DCEAB It is not a FY1’s responsibility to break bad news to a patient and the full results are not available yet. It would be most appropriate for a senior colleague to speak to Mr Kucera with regards his diagnosis. Informing Mr Kucera that you will speak to him as soon as you get the test results back would still be appropriate as you are giving him some information, although this may not necessarily mean that you would be providing him with the diagnosis. It may be appropriate to discuss Mr Kucera’s fears with him, but by doing this you may not be attending to other ill patients and are asking a colleague to take on your responsibility by holding your bleep. It may also become a difficult conversation when you do not have full details of the results. It would not necessarily be appropriate to tell Mr Kucera that his cancer is back as this has not been confirmed, however it would be inappropriate to provide false hope to a patient when preliminary investigations are strongly suggestive of a recurrence.

12 example 2 You review a patient on the surgical ward who has had an appendectomy done earlier on the day. You write a prescription for strong painkillers. The staff nurse challenges your decision and refuses to give the medication to the patient.

13 A Instruct the nurse to give the medication to the patient B Discuss with the nurse why she disagrees with the prescription C Ask a senior colleague for advice D Complete a clinical incident form E Cancel the prescription on the nurse’s advice F Arrange to speak to the nurse later to discuss your working relationship G Write in the medical notes that the nurse has declined to give the medication H Review the case again

14 answer: BCH Ensuring patient safety is key to this scenario. It is important to discuss the nurse’s decision with her as there may be something that you have missed when first reviewing the patient. Therefore it would also be important to review the patient again. Also relating to this is the importance of respecting the views of colleagues and maintaining working relationships, even if there is disagreement. As there has been a disagreement regarding patient care, it is important to seek advice from a senior colleague.
