Module 2

Module 2 looks at the stage of the consultation where the doctor finds out more about the patient's problem. This involves asking the patient about their beliefs, concerns and expectations regarding the problem and what can be done about it, as well as taking a history.


The module consists of different types of study task:

  • The Self-assessment exercise will give you an overview of the module content. You can see where your strengths are and where you need to do extra practice.
  • Language and Communication Skills practice exercises introduce useful language and skills. Some exercises contain video and audio and may take time to download if you have a dial-up internet connection. There are also 'mini-role play' tasks to enable you to practise language more freely.
  • The Role play section contains instructions for performing in a range of scenarios. Work with a partner to practise the language and skills you have studied in the module.
