oscesmart in Psychiatry
Practice vignettes, histories and mark schemes for your finals.
ED, General Practice, Surgery, Orthopaedics... There is not one setting in modern day medicine which is exempt from psychiatric presentations.
Whether you are seeing an elderly patient who has stopped taking their medication since the death of their partner, or a young girl who has overdosed in the emergency department, psychiatry is everywhere.
This purpose of this book is to provide medical students with a psychiatric toolkit that will not only be useful in exam preparation, but also as you begin your career as a foundation doctor.
This book has been designed for a group of three students practicing OSCES,
who rotate the role of actor, examiner, and candidate. There is so much learning to be gained from playing each of these roles, whilst covering a breadth of psychiatric skills such as counselling, Mental State Examination's
(MSE), SBAR handovers, history taking and DRABCDE assessments.
We have included versatile and challenging cases that could be encountered anywhere and everywhere, such as performing a capacity assessment on a surgical ward, and assessing a victim of domestic violence.
oscesmart revision series have been devised to aid your preparation for medical school OSCEs.

• Student vignettes
