Help The new changes in the CIS component!


I am having my exam next week and I am worried about the NEW CIS (clinical interpersonal skills) needed to pass the exam? what should i do in addition to what already known? are there any new sentences suggested for such thing?
any changes at the beginning of the encounter? any changes at the closure?

I really appreciate your help

There are no changes. The CIS still the same and still composed of the same sub-components:
Questioning skills - Information-sharing skills - Professional manner and rapport
It's just that they will be giving more weight and focus on these than before but no major changes.
