Psychosocial history important in the exams particularly the OSCE Practical Exams

In Australian General Practice and in particular, the Australian GP Practical Exams, remember to always address any psychosocial issues in your consultations.  It is a very important part of Australian General Practice.

Ask about social history and if there are clues like divorce, single parent, child with disability etc, always ask about stress and how they are coping.  Screen for depression and assess safety.
