Realistic Medicine Conference 2018

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in conference


Realistic medicine puts the person receiving health and social care at the centre of decisions made about their care. It encourages health and care workers to find out what matters most to you [as a patient or care recipient] so that the care of your condition fits your needs and situation. Realistic medicine recognises that a one size fits all approach to health and social care is not the most effective path for the patient or the NHS. Realistic medicine is not just about doctors. ‘Medicine’ includes all professionals who use their skills and knowledge to help people maintain health and to prevent and treat illness. This includes professions such as nursing, pharmacy, counsellors, physios and social work.
