General guidance regarding the assignment brief and what will be expected of you.
A major part of the viva will be focused on how you would see the patient in the case study and questions asked. – but be prepared to modify the route depending on the questions the examiners may ask. If you say you would expect the ulcer to be healed in 4 weeks be prepared for someone to ask ‘how would you modify the route through the pathway if the ulcer (in-fact) deteriorated’. Think about the patient in the case study being a real person in front of you and you have to manage the case.
You must be able to back up anything you say from an evidence base and using current guidelines.
Include where possible suitable references
