GDM diagnostic criteria Posted by Chetna K.


Dear Dr.Paul,

Shall we use the new diagnostic criteria for GDM as proposed by IADPSG or stick to NICE guidelines? Pls suggest.


New guideline Posted by S M.

New guideline on sickle cell disease has come out. Do we need to read that?

Although the questions were set a while ago, the marking scheme will be based on the information available at the time of the exam. However, it is unlikely that you will be marked on information published the day before the exam. All you can do is read all information that is available and answer questions based on the most current information.
