The book features a unique Two Houses model to help the reader move away from completing a series of tasks to focusing on the two key objectives at the heart of every consultation:
* Working out what matters (The House of Discovery)
* Deciding with the patient what to do about it (The House of Decision)
"This book will not teach you to improve your consultations. That is its great merit. Instead, it will encourage you to learn how to consult better." From the Foreword by Roger Neighbour
FREE Resources: Two Houses Guides
Click on the Resources tab above to access the free guides which accompany the book. These are a great aid for GPs looking to improve their consultation skills as well as for trainees preparing for the CSA exam. The use of the guides is discussed in detail in Chapter 16 of The GP Consultation Reimagined.
The Guide to the guides on the Resources tab explains the layout of each Two Houses guide.
Each guide takes either a clinical topic, such as Managing the menopause , or a common scenario in general practice, for instance The angry patient. The guide presents a practical, working structure for the consultation that might follow in these situations, considering the consultation in the terms of the Two Houses model, with the aim of enhancing the confidence of the reader when faced with such a scenario and equipping them with tools for this particular consultation.
Further guides, as well as details of CSA courses based on the book, are available on the authors website www.twohousesgp.com. More guides will be added over time and the author is keen to have suggestions for future scenarios to cover. He can be contacted on twitter @docmartin68
