Pre course Case Study:

Mr. R Brown is a 74 year old man with a history of hypercholesterolaemia, treated hypertension and diet-controlled type II diabetes mellitus. He has noticed increased frequency of passing urine, particularly troublesome at night. He has asked the practice nurse about a PSA test just before his routine 'well man' monitoring tests. (For the sake of this exercise we are assuming you have to authorise PSA blood tests at your surgery before any AHP can send off the request).

Would you:

A. Authorise the test without any further questions and get on with your overbooked surgery?

B. Insist on your practice nurse giving him the PCRMP leaflet, but take the blood anyway?

C. Ask her to provide him with written information (e.g. PCRMP PSA testing leaflet https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/prostate-specific-antigen-testing-description-in-brief or similar, then book him back in for the blood test in a week or so.

D. As per (C) above, but see him yourself for a physical examination and further discussion before proceeding with the test?

E. None of the above.

Please have your thoughts on this area ready for the event day
