Sample text

The Model is an attempt to unpack the features at work in this complex activity. This raises two issues: one is the problem of sharing complex matters accessibly, the other of unpicking the substance of complex practice itself. Both issues surface implicitly and explicitly in what follows. The Model is complicated Some colleagues have commented that the Model presented diagrammatically looks complicated. It is. Consulting is a complex business, as we discuss on p. 131. Yet expert consulters can make the process look easy in a way that a learner may find difficult to understand.

Suffice to say, components of the Model have been identified by reflecting on the group’s experience in practice. As such it represents what some practitioners think happens. It can’t be proved in any way other than through the approval of colleagues – others with more resource potential might be able to prove it. It is therefore desirable that the notion of expertise in family medicine is explored further. References 1. Neighbour R. The Inner Apprentice. Dordrecht: Kluwer Academic Publishers; 1992.

Just how it happens is difficult to say, but the use of interpersonal skills seems to expand both in range and quality. One can expect cues to be picked up during early training, but the more subtle clues sensed from pauses, changes in tone, half spoken disclosures or shifts in body language, what one colleague referred to as ‘the music of the consultation’, may not be. These require a level of attention only possible from a doctor who, with greater self-knowledge, has fine-tuned their radar. In terms of an interpersonal skill repertoire, it is noticeable when looking at video tapes that experienced doctors use a greater number of identifiable skills, as well as adapting and extending the effectiveness of basic skills such as listening, use of silence and questioning.
