This is an area where patients' experiences have been incorporated into resources to help you with your learning. Understanding their perspectives will help you be patient-centered.

'Medicine today is all about working in partnership with patients.

We use our expertise as doctors to help our patients to make the best personal choices about their healthcare.

Patients develop their own expertise in health and disease, and their different perspectives can give us greater insight into how to provide the best care for them.

This VLE area has been developed to allow doctors to develop their understanding of this patient perspective and be better at providing 'patient centred' care.

The resources have been developed by patients or carers who wish to use their expertise and experience to help develop the skills of the future healthcare workforce.
