Key points will be discussed

  • A well thought out introduction will start the encounter off successfully. Always remember people are likely to make a snap judgement about us in the first few seconds.
  • Addressing the patient by their preferred name and using this in the consultation will help build rapport. Our name is the most personal thing about us, so it is important to get it right.
  • Can I switch on the ‘OFF’ method? Occurring - what is happening? Feelings - what feeling are involved here? Follow up plan - what are the next steps?
  • Building rapport - try a signpost or a summary. This will make the patient feel heard but also buy you some thinking time.
  • ‘You mentioned x, can we discuss that a bit further?’ ‘I’ve heard you mention a, b, & c and that this has made you feel quite upset, does that sound right to you?’
  • Think about exploring the patient’s; Ideas - Concerns - Expectations especially in a difficult encounter.

Target Audience

  • Pre/Post PLAB Candidates
  • GP Trainees
  • Foundation Year Doctors
