Clinical reasoning from a whole person perspective - how do we do it when we don't want to step out of scope, but we know that the person in front of us is a person, not just a body part? This podcast aims to explore some of the issues, as Dr Sandra Hilton (physiotherapist) and Dr Bronnie Lennox Thompson (occupational therapist) grapple with some of the most complex ideas we have to struggle with in our clinical practice.
We don't have all the answers - we see this podcast as part of a longer-term conversation that all allied health (and maybe even medical) clinicians will increasingly be engaged with. We hope to inspire some thoughts about how we can integrate a whole person perspective without becoming too complex, and without over-simplifying. Join us and feel free to engage with both of us online.
