      They’re often interesting! I think confidentiality would stop us going into specific detail but to get the treatment or plan right for the patient we have to take an active interest in them, how they tick and what would be in their best interests.
      We try to be patient-centred, meaning we don’t try and lead the conversation and overrule the patient, but work with them using our knowledge to suggest appropriate choices they could make- getting patients on board means they’re more likely to stick to the suggested plan

      Supporting a deaf, mute gentleman who could not read or write with a diagnosis of diabetes. I had to find ways to explain his condition, how to manage it with healthy lifestyle choices and medicine management. He eventually needed insulin injections but he was safely able to do this with the support I provided.

      On my Obstetrics placement I had the opportunity to speak to a surrogate mother. It was really interesting to hear her story and her experience of being a surrogate mother.
