Example clinical problems: Excipients



To help you think about the process of clinical problem-solving, we've provided two real clinical problems for you. Click on the link to download the Word document to write in, or you might just want to look at the scenarios and discuss them with your tutor or a colleague. For each situation, please consider:

  • What questions would you ask if you were presented with this scenario in your practice?
  • What sources of information would you use?

There's no need to research a full answer unless your tutor instructs you to, but you could make notes on these scenarios and record them as a CPD exercise if you wish. Once you've had thinking time, you can see some suggestions we've made in response to each scenario here.
