Type 2 diabetic on injectables

The scenario

Here you are given either a video or audio clip, along with a transcript of what was said. These are real scenarios that junior doctors will experience in the workplace.

Hi, thanks for taking the call.  I’ve got a type 2 diabetic here who’s quite overweight.  They’re on an injection that I don’t understand.  She tells me that it’s insulin.  It’s called exenatide.  Can you tell me what it is please and how I’m supposed to give it?”

Tracey, nurse

In some scenarios, there may be a drug chart to complete, or some other skill to practise. The aim is to prepare junior doctors for the kinds of practical activities they may need to undertake.
