Performance in Practice

'Managing the trainee in difficulty' is a task that can cause considerable anxiety for postgraduate medical educators.  But there are a few principles and some simple tools that can help.  These are covered on the Performance in Practice DVD that is now available via Synapse, the communications network for postgraduate medical education in London.  Performance in Practice is a learning resource targeted at educational and clinical supervisors.  The content of this short interactive, video-based programme includes:

• recognising the trainee in difficulty
• common presentations
• diagnosis
• immediate management
