Consultation Skills Assessment (CSA)
Foundation assessment tool
The Consultation Skills Assessment (CSA) is a reflective tool that can be used to support the development of your consultation behaviours and skills, and particularly helps you to develop and demonstrate competencies in cluster 1 of the FPF – Patient and Pharmaceutical Care.
This tool provides a structured approach to reviewing a patient’s medicines to identify any problems they may have, including how the patient adheres to their treatment. This assessment can take between 10-30 minutes (this will depend on the patient in question).
