Dear Student, Re: Stage 1 OSCE April 2007 Please find enclosed a copy of the Candidate Instructions for Breaking Bad News, one of the five CCS/communication stations. It is important that you come prepared for this station – please familiarise yourself with the patient details as written in the instructions and think through how you are going to approach this difficult communication challenge. It is important that you read all instructions carefully prior to the exam. You will also be emailed a copy of these papers. If you have any questions regarding this please contact Klaud Simpson (x: 6630) or Cilla Pettitt (x: 6117).
