Here is the long awaited new addition to my surgery!
So after a trip to Ikea and then subsequently a bit of customisation with the circular saw I finally have a TV in the surgery and a proper place for it to live.
I have touched on the idea of a template document for explaining options to pts before but felt it was time I actually discussed this in more detail. I call this my "Complex treatment considerations" document.
When I started doing more complex cases a couple of years ago I found it difficult to explain all potential options to some patients verbally in a short time so decided to try to create a written summary of the pts problems and their broad options. This process was very time consuming at first taking up a lot of my lunchbreaks etc. So after doing it a few times I decided to see if I could speed the process up by creating a template. Over time the template has been added to and edited but I now use it very regularly and find it very useful.
