Behind closed doors

Date Reviewed:

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.

Note: This is the updated, version 2 of this video. If you want to see the original version it is available on our Vimeo channel.


Hurray! the version I really like is back! I think seeing the comments on the computer screen to help point out how the conversation is different as it goes along, in the second conversation, is really helpful. Thank you! Also- the "thought bubbles" are excellent.
