    Then you'll be the first medical student ever to do so. Even budding dermatologists can't actually face this task.

    UNLESS the problem was originally caused by too much sunshine. In which case, replace with sunscreen

    I'm so glad its MCQ's and not essays, my essay would literally go... It is a red rash, a red that that is dry. Therefore, we like to keep it wet.

    Does anyone use CAGE in an alcohol history OSCE or do you prefer AUDIT-C?
    Rumour in our year is that they don't like CAGE at all - but then we have never formally been taught how to take an alcohol history.

    AUDIT-C seems, to me, overly complicated to interpret properly within an OSCE station. (Presuming you are not provided the template & marking criteria)

    I wouldn't ad lib AUDIT-C, that's a bit ridiculous. For alcohol screening there's no real problem with CAGE - it's very sensitive and specific (about 90% for each). Not sure why a university would disagree with something like CAGE. Simplicity for tools isn't something that's a bad thing...

    Rumours are probably rumours. Somebody probably did a history in front of some OTT gastro reg who didn't like CAGE and it spread from there.
