We are discussing a PBL case with one of the GPs, when he begins a little speech: There are a lot of skills, peripheral to your examination skills and your history taking skills, that are really good to work on. And here at this clinic and this hospital, you will have more opportunities than your city colleagues to work on these skills.

Whatever it is, I’m sold. I must work on these skills.

One of these skills is changing colostomy bags.

I look up. As far as I can tell, he is serious. I recall that we have a patient in the hospital who is seeing the stoma nurse next week to learn all about his colostomy bag. How fortunate!
