Chapter 8 examines some of the factors that influence how doctors consult, including their own beliefs and skills, the environment in which the consultation takes place, as well as the consultation itself and its outcome from the point of view of the individual doctor in practice. It considers the stages the individual doctor would need to go through to make changes in the way that he or she consults with patients, including coping with the stresses that change produces, as well as how the environment within which the doctor works can be developed to support a patient-centred approach.
