As of this week I’ll be posting a VAQ question that you can have a go at answering, and the answer will be posted the following week. These will all be real cases I’ve seen at work, and I’ll try & make them relevant to current hot topics in Emergency Medicine, or common themes/question types that pop up in the exam. Remember, time yourself, and enjoy!
