New consultation tool helps nurses provide patient-centred eczema care
Eczema can have a significant effect on a patient’s quality of life, but when clinicians have limited time it can be hard to quickly assess how patients are managing their condition. For this reason a panel of experts, including consultant dermatologists and clinical psychologists, have created the TalkingEczema tool – a simple yet effective resource to help clinicians make the most of consultation time with their patients.
Without taking up any extra time, the new tool can help clinicians:
- Facilitate more focused and holistic consultations
- Ensure patient-centred care
- Minimise wastage through rationalised prescribing and tailored treatment plans
- Improve patient outcomes.
Dr Tony Bewley, consultant dermatologist and chair of the BAD psychodermatology group, said: ‘The patient feels heard, understood and informed, and better able to follow their treatment regimen.’
