    Urgh PLEASE can people stop clapping after lectures...
    THIS!!!! In my previous degree, no one EVER clapped. It is rather annoying. For guest lecturers, yes a round of applause is always needed but not for your everyday lecturer :rolleyes:

    Nah love it - in first year and second year it helps you work out the good lecturers as they always got a really good clap
    Or the ones who are **** and get the sarcastic applause.

    Urgh, i hate it! Would you have clapped your teachers after a lesson at sixth form?

    Ok so I decided to do some work as I can't sleep. We have to write a reflective piece. I have not really done a proper reflective piece before. I have done some in the past but basically wrote a load of blah, but this one actually gets marked and I have no idea how to reflect .

    I have tried to Google: how to reflect.
    Any tips?

    Help
    This is the structure we are told to use:
    What happened?
    How did it make me feel? :yucky:
    So what?
    Now what?
    If I was to do it again, how would I do it differently?

    This does assume you are talking more about an experience. If it's more about legislation, I used to do:
    What is it?
    What's the background?
    How does this affect me?
    How does this affect the profession?
    How does this affect the public (and it's view of us/NHS)?

    My guess would be B3 deficiency, 'Pellagra'... Remember with the Ds - Diarrhoea, Dermatitis, Dementia and Death (uh-ho).

    Looking thin = malnutrition = vitamin deficiency

    Absolutly, I completly missed the dx, wasn't thinking of it, my thoughts were elderly pt, malnourished ?cehcexia confused and with diahhorrea. All of which are sadly fairly common in hospital. + a rash, which I'd never seen before. I thought ?ezcama. He diddnt have Cassels though.

    Regarding the clapping of lecturers at the end of a lecture, we do often get that classic med school scenario whereby the lecturer's just given the most boring, uninspiring lecture ever and at the end asks, "Any questions?"

    To which most of us start clapping before the keenos at the front start asking questions and prolonging the agony

    a brief description of the situation, how it made you feel, how did you react, what you learnt, how will this experience change your practice in the future.. I have reflected waaaay too much in this degree.

    I think it's even worse when you have 4 different lecturers in a span of 4 hours. By the time you get to the last lecture, we are all too excited to leave that we forget to clap. It gets so awkward because obviously the lecturer is expecting us to clap and you can hear a pin drop and then someone makes a move - cue stampede out the door. Still remember we had one lecture where we didn't clap and was waiting for the next lecturer to come in. You could feel the tension in the air...someone finally clapped (very slowly)...and then maybe 5ish people joined. Felt really bad for the lecturer. (yes it was a very very boring and uninspiring lecture).

    We as a year tend to clap, for the very least out of respect for the lecturer, they're very rarely so bad they don't receive one.

    Gotta do some **** about inter-professional learning. Some online forum with nursing/physio/social work etc students and online e-tivities about a fictional street :facepalm2:

    We've also had two lectures about how to search a journal database. Keeping in mind that we're all graduates. I wont even mention the afternoon that we spent having a group discussion to define what it meant to be 'ethnic'.

    As much as I love my medical school, they have weird priorities sometimes.
