Comments on VAQ 4

I would agree with most of the answers (has commenting been disabled?) but I would also make a few other points

– this is a pancytopaenia (neutropaenia counts, doesn’t have to be total WCC)

– I personally wouldn’t give more than a passing mention (if any) to the management / breaking bad news given the wording of the question. Describe and interpret has a very specific meaning and does not include management. Putting that psychosocial stuff in is great for some questions, but I would be very particular about not putting answers that haven’t been asked (not entirely true – I think a one or two phrase section might be worthwhile to mitigate the odd examiner who doesn’t follow college guidelines) but time in the exam is very limited and padding out answers with unasked detail is something I would be very careful of.
