Morning workshop synopsis

The use of psychological formulations to guide treatment and improve outcomes

Hugo Nel - Women’s MSU IPU Clinical Lead, Consultant Clinical Psychologist - Women's Service  St Andrew's Healthcare


Value based healthcare is about arranging what clinicians do around the needs of the patients. Clinical formulations lend itself to describe the idiosyncratic needs of patients by combining psychological theory and personal meanings through a process of ongoing collaborative sense making in order to develop a shared account that indicates the most helpful way forward.
