Doctors, nurses and other clinicians can change their consultation behaviour in ways that:
- Improve clinical outcomes for patients
- Improve satisfaction for both patient and clinician
- Promote effective use of clinician’s time
- Reduce medico-legal risk

Several Speciality Training Committees have mandated our skills based training for SpRs. Most college exams now test this competence. Revalidation against the principles of “Good Medical Practice” is expected to require evidence of skill development in this domain.
