Consultation guide

Julie Van Onselen
Educator and Clinical Advisor

"Take a look at the E45 consultation guide, we have created it to help you make the most of the time you spend with each of your patients."

Typically in primary care practice, HCPs don't have much time to spend with their patients, for example the average GP consultation lasts for just 12 minutes 1 so it’s really hard to cover everything a patient with a dry and/or itchy skin condition needs and wants to know.

This consultation guide can help you collect the right information, structure your consultations and give patients the information they need to manage their dry and/or itchy skin effectively.

Thank you to Julie Van Onselen, Educator and Clinical Advisor at Dermatology Education Partnership Ltd, for her valuable input and guidance in creating this consultation guide.*
