  • Demonstrate the ability to take a sexual health history and approach patients confidently in this context
  • Safe approach to fevers in a returned traveller
  • Understand the principles and develop an approach to antimicrobial stewardship in common paediatric infections
  • Awareness of rare conditions such as primary immune deficiency and how and when to investigate
