Due to the ever-evolving nature of Emergency Medicine, with an emphasis on self-development and patient-centred care the junior clinician and emergency medicine trainee are troubled with many dilemmas in their day to day clinical care.

Doctors need to address their clinical knowledge, personal attitudes and pre-conceptions when providing high quality clinical care.

It is important for doctors to develop their critical thinking and problem solving skills when addressed with difficult scenarios. Their approach to rectify these dilemmas is very important as it can impact on providing future patient care.

When confronted with a scenario in the situational judgement paper it is important to assessing and address the situation in a calm and collected manner without displaying prejudice or previously enshrined pre-conceptions. It is important to obtain all of the facts and address the problem in a professional and non-judgemental manner.
