About this animation

As part of our Co-Creating Health programme, we want to change the relationship between clinicians and patients, allowing patients to play a more active role in their care. To make this change, we need to consider what happens in the private space of the consultation room, behind closed doors.

In this animation, we look at a traditional patient/clinician consultation and one where the clinician adapts their questions and comments, empowering the patient to make their own decisions about their care.

Previous version with teaching notes

There is an older version of this animation with some changes in the dialogue and pauses in the second consultation to point out specifics of how the GP approaches the conversation differently.
