From my extensive OOH experience, I feel that he module was inaccurate as in real life this would not be the correct path to take. For example, unless you fail to make contact with a hyperkalaemic patient, there would be little to no value in a home visit as they need to be managed, and therefore admitted directly to secondary care.

Probably would have had higher mark if not doing whilst at work but good practice when quiet periods at work for reflection and learning
