Section 2: Introduction

The next part of the Aligned Care journey will show you how you can use this approach to really make a difference to your patients and yourself.

We have said that an Aligned Care approach can improve our consultations so in this section we are going to explore what this approach is and how it can help you.

Learning outcomes

  • You will understand what an Aligned Care approach is and what it can do for your patients who live with long-term conditions.

  • You will be able to recognise the importance of treating the person in front of you not just their condition/disease.

  • You will learn how to evaluate your own consultations and recognise how to improve the traditional way of consulting.

  • Stepping into your patients’ shoes will help you to gain an insight into how their condition impacts them.
