This exercise is for you to reflect on a recent consultation that you or a relative have attended as a patient. Looking at the statements below score 1 point if the statement reflects that consultation.. (this principle can also be used to assess the consultations that you are delivering as a health care professional)
Score 1 point for each of these statements if they apply to your consultation as a patient
How many points did you score?
The number of points that you scored reflects how much your consultation was personalised and holistic, the more points scored the more you received an holistic approach to care.
Now consider what would have made a difference for that consultation to be better or if your score was high- what was the difference that made the difference?
With this in mind we are going to look at what the benefits can be when using an Aligned holistic approach with patients.
