REALISTIC MEDICINE

Realistic medicine is a concept that is being explored and developed by the Chief Medical Officer for Scotland. It looks at:

  • building a personalised approach to care;
  • changing our style to shared decision making;
  • improving our understanding and management of value and risk;
  • valuing our workforce;
  • tackling unwarranted variation in care
  • reducing harm and waste;
  • sharing knowledge;
  • Developing our capacity to innovate and improve health care

For more information, please visit NHS inform - realistic medicine. One of the partners, Dr Dawson, will be working with the Scottish Health Council to see if we can develop a model that will bring these policies to life in a community health care setting. She is writing a blog about her views on realistic medicine and her project.
