CG113 Anxiety: clinical case scenarios

These clinical case scenarios are an educational resource that can be used in individual or group learning situations.

They illustrate the application of the recommendations on generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) in the clinical guideline ‘Generalised anxiety and panic disorder (with or without agoraphobia) in adults’ to the care of people presenting with symptoms of generalised anxiety disorder in primary care.

Five scenarios are outlined. Each scenario includes details of the person’s initial presentation, their past medical history and the clinician’s summary of the situation after examination. The clinical decisions surrounding diagnosis and management are then examined using a question and answer approach. Each question should be considered by the individual or group before referring to the answers.

The clinical case scenarios are presented in a PDF document and a PowerPoint presentation.
