BRS behavioural science has a list of do's and don'ts for these dr-pt scenarios, you could go thru that.
I got a lot of these scenarios during my exam. I think the best way to deal with them is to imagine yourself to be the world's most selfless, most saintly doctor and don't pass the buck (don't refer pt's to other specialists). A good strategy is to pick the most open-ended option - the one that allows
you to get more info from the pt. Basically don't jump to conclusions based on the info in the question. if there is an option that allows you to get more info, use it.
(the one which says, in effect - tell me about your problem)
because that would be the most logical thing to do in real life.
ethics is not the same as dr-pt scenarios. ethics q's can be answered by going according to the rules (again see BRS or Compass notes).
another category of behavioural q's has to do with legal situations- again follow the rules.
anyway pay attention to pathology - it's the most high-yield.
