Take ownership for all newly admitted patients in the wards. Review them every day and record daily notes. Write discharge summaries when they are discharged.
Choose any patient that you have followed up from admission to discharge as the case for your portfolio. Discuss your chosen patient with me before your write your complete report. At the time of discussion, I will need to know your provisional diagnosis, working diagnosis, discharge diagnosis and discharge prescription. Please also provide a written summary during this discussion.
Submit the first draft of your written reflective case report in the appropriate portfolio format to the IMU E-Learning portal before the last working day of the 3rd week of your posting.
