Practice Question: Patient awaiting test results situation.
"You are a GP talking to a patient in your surgery who is anxiously awaiting test results for a condition they are concerned they might have. How would you approach the situation?"
When asked a question like this in a medical school interview, you may want to consider the following points:
Listen to the patient. Understand what the patient is specifically concerned about, it may be they are worried about how their condition will affect their ability to work, to take part in the hobbies they enjoy, or they are worried they will be a burden to those around them.
